Since his conducting debut in 2000 Korsgård has showed himself as one of Norway’s most comprehensive conductors. From the stage through orchestra, wind bands and smaller ensembles he works within most genres, but with a preference for contemporary and 20th century music.
Highlights from last year includes the world premiere of Glenn Erik Haugland’s opera Rebekka at The Norwegian Opera. During the Bergen and Ultima Festivals Korsgård conducted the BIT20 Ensemble in the ballet This Night of No Moon to Bent Sørensen’s music. A new appearance at The Norwegian Opera and Ballet during spring 2008 gave the first world premiere in the new opera house, the ballet A modern place set to music by Henrik Hellstenius and Rolf Wallin.
Korsgård has worked with all the Norwegian orchestras as well as the BIT20 Ensemble. He is since 2005 artistic director for the Bergen Military Band.
In 2003 Korsgård won the Norwegian conducting competition with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. From 2001 to 2003 he worked frequently with Stavanger Symphony Orchestra and the University of Stavanger on a fellowship program.
Korsgård studied orchestral conducting at the Norwegian Academy of Music from 1998 to 2000 with the professors Simon Streatfield and Ole Kristian Ruud. He has participated in masterclasses with George Hurst and Kurt Sanderling and has also received lessons from Jorma Panula.
