Her recording "Veggen" - the soundtrack from the song & pantomime performance - received the NOPA (Guild of Norwegian Pop composers) Award for best compositary work 2011.
The last years, Karoline has enjoyed great success on the stage of
the theater: a major role in the critically acclaimed modern
cabaret version of Ibsens "Peer Gynt" has taken her
amongst others to Barcelona, Lisboa, Hamburg and
New York. She spent the major part of 2017 as an actress
with acclaimed ensemble "Statsteatret", also
writing the musical score for their production
"1950- The Spy". The spring of 2019 she will take on
her biggest musical challenge until now: the part of
"Florence" in CHESS, at Folketeatret in Oslo.
Both as a composer and as concert
performer Karoline leans on her
comprehensive work from the theatre
field: Whether the form it takes
is simple and bequiling or
dramatically melodious, it is always
interwoven with the narrative.
Karoline Krüger is to be found in the "Land-of-in-between". She has,
first and foremost, since her debut over three decades ago, firmly established herself in the flora of Norwegian performing artists, as an exciting and gifted performer and composer. One of her hallmarks
has always been her willingness to seek out new forms of expression - the theatre being one of them. "The difference between the
performing artist and the actor", she says, "was already clearly
visible to me in the days of schoolplay performances. Those
who dreamed of becoming actors wanted to play the
part of the Witch: we budding performers were only
interested in playing Snow White...!"
In the course of two decades Karoline Krüger
has released six solo albums and has been
featured on numerous others. Her debut
album, "Fasetter" (Facets) was released in
The same year she enjoyed a
huge hit in parts of Europe & Asia
with the ballad "You call it love".
However, it was with the album "Fuglehjerte" (The Heart of a
Bird) that she really blossomed as lyricist and
composer. The triology of the "Jacob's Mass", for
which she wrote the music, have since the first
performance in Oslo in 2000, been performed
and broadcasted in several Scandinavian countries.
Her latest CD "Labyrinter!" (Labyrinths!),
based on her music to children poems by Norwegian poet
André Bjerke,received exellent reviews and was also
nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Award 2018.
