Meet Yngvild

Yngvild Vivja Haaland Ruud is a Norwegian born harpsichordist. Being a modern and curious musician, her repertoire ranges from early opera to contemporary music. She performs as a soloist, in chamber music constellations and with orchestras, as well as leading ensembles.

Specialized in early music and historical performance practice as well as contemporary music, she has a fresh approach for sharing classical music with new audiences. Her passion for new music has led to collaborations with exciting contemporary composers and several world premieres. ​Furthermore she is involved in a number of ensembles, exploring sounds and moving between genres.

Yngvild is educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Music and Sibelius Academy (Master of Music). She has created several projects – such as the music society Amager Klassisk (re-defining the outreach of classical music) of which she also is the artistic director. Her focus is to follow her dream – sharing wonderful music with a passionate audience. That might happen anywhere – in an opera, in a concert hall, in a church… or somewhere in her neighborhood. Together with people or alone – always with the purpose of sharing – longing to grasp the magic of music.
Yngvild also has a masters degree in classical accordion/contemporary music.
