Anna Linh Nguyen Berg is a Norwegian-Vietnamese composer from Kolbotn, Norway.
Her music exists somewhere in between modernism and tradition, with timbre and elegance as central themes. She wants each of her pieces to create their own language and is concerned with how structure and form impacts the listener’s perception of the whole.
Berg composes chamber music for a wide range of ensembles, from large ensembles and string orchestras to quartets and duo- and solo works. In addition she has a passion for new music for choir and she also composes electroacoustic works and music for film.
During the past years her music has been performed at concerts and festivals in Norway and Europe, among them at Ultima in 2019 and 2020 and at Ung Nordisk Musikk in Finland.
She has collaborated with ensembles such as Trondheim Symfoniorkester & Opera, Ensemble Ernst, Friction Quartet, Tampere Cappella, Vulkan Quartet, Rattlebelles and Ensemble 96. In 2019, Berg founded Ensemble 3030, a new ensemble for contemporary music at The Norwegian Academy of Music.
