Elena Urioste & Tom Poster

Foundations
Music
Past events:
An unpretentious duo with unsurpassed joy of playing.

Violinist Elena Urioste and pianist/multi instrumentalist Tom Poster made a musical decision when the pandemic generated global lockdown in 2020: they started producing their own music videos with the project name #UriPosteJukeBox. The husband and wife team has so far made more than 88 videos, ranging from classical works to Take on Me, featuring not only traditional performance wear but also animal costumes and sweatpants. The couple also run the project Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective, which aims to celebrate diversity in all its glory.

At the Bergen International Festival they appear in more traditional format, with works by Benjamin Britten, Clara Schumann, Edvard Grieg and Ole Bull augmented with pieces by younger composers including Mark Simpson and Donald Grant. Tom Poster also has a solo recital in Grieg's Villa.

'...the rapport between Urioste and Poster produced a performance that was carefree in the very best sense.'  – THE GUARDIAN
