Geir LangsletBorn: 1956, Horten (Norway)
Geir Langslet was musical director of several editions of the Melodi Grand Prix, the Norwegian Eurovision pre-selection. As a conductor, he appeared three times in the international contest, experiencing the highs and lows of the competition, being part of the winning team of 1995 with Rolf Løvland’s composition ‘Nocturne’ and conducting Tor Endresen’s nil-pointer ‘San Francisco’ two years later. Langslet’s last involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest came in 1998, when he led the BBC Concert Orchestra for the Norwegian entry ‘Alltid sommer’, performed by Lars A. Frederiksen.
