- Yes, life is as strange as
folk songs. We don't know if
they were meant to be in major or minor key... Some of the melodies are exquisitely beautiful. At any rate I have written down chord progression that are outrageous. However,
in my defense I must say that they did not originate at the
piano, but in my mind.

BIOGRAPHIES  

OLIVIERO HASSAN has been a member of Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra's viola section since 2008.

Having grown up in Berlin, his first violin teachers had been Amadeus Heutling of the Berlin Philharmonic, and Abraham Jaffé. It was only in 2007 that a befriended violist recommended him to try the viola, and Oliviero instantly took to the beauty of the viola's warm sound. He then attended several viola masterclasses with, among others, Lars Anders Tomter and Lawrence Power at the Aurora Masterclass 2011 in Sweden.

Before joining the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Oliviero has played with numerous German orchestras, such as SWR Baden-Baden & Freiburg, the NDR Radiophilharmonie, Hamburger Symphoniker, and others.
