Tina Margareta Nilssen has performed solo recitals in New York, Berlin, Oslo, Moscow, Trondheim and Copenhagen amongst other places. She has also performed Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg and Gershwin as a soloist with various orchestras.


Nilssen’s performance must not be underestimated as it pertains to the whole. It is her exquisite and perfectly measured playing that produces such a sense of detached time and space. Her playing is effortless, masterful and lush. It’s easy to get lost in the notes and forget all about the troubles in the world. Nothing matters when this level of beauty is so easily attained by a mere push of the start button on your digital transport.”

“I think it should be obvious by now how I feel about Appassionata, and that is an essential piano recording. If you have yet to splurge on a 2L Recording, end the drought and start here.”

— Marc Phillips, New York, 16. February 2018

”Her instrumental abilities are on an internationally high level. But even more important is her artistic an communicative talent, that places her in a small and exclusive lead amongst younger Norwegian performers.”

Wolfgang Plagge, composer and pianist

 «She masters a rich variability of sound, and can paint her interpretations with great personal expression.”

Randi Haugen, former journalist in NRK P2 and leader of the St.Olav Festival in Trondheim
