Anna Linh Nguyen Berg (born 1992) is a Norwegian Vietnamese composer from Kolbotn, Norway, based in Paris and Oslo. Berg has a Bachelor’s degree in composition from The Norwegian Academy of Music (2017-2021), and a Master’s degree in composition from The Norwegian Academy of Music and Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (2021-2023).
In her catalogue, you can find works for a wide range of ensembles such as symphony orchestra, string orchestra, sinfonietta and choir, in addition to works for smaller constellations such as string quartet, duos and solos. She also creates music for film and dance.
Berg’s works are performed regularly at concerts and festivals in Norway, the Nordic countries and Europe, among them at Ultima, Festspillene i Bergen, Arctic Chamber Music Festival, International Rostrum of Composers, Norland Musikkfestuke and Ung Nordisk Musikk. Her works have been performed by some of Norway’s most prominent musicians and ensembles, such as Guro Kleven Hagen, Amalie Stalheim, Eivind Ringstad, Arctic Philharmonic, Ensemble Allegria and Ensemble Ernst.
Berg’s music has timbre and elegance as central themes. She wants each of her pieces to create their own language and is concerned with how structure, form and layers in music impact the listener’s perception of the whole.
In 2019, Berg founded Ensemble 3030, a contemporary music ensemble based in Oslo. She is a member of The Norwegian Society of Composers, Norsk komponistforening.
