OUT NOW | Violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing's New CD: 'Grieg Violin Sonatas' [LISTEN]

BIS Records has announced the release of Norwegian violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing's new album: 'Grieg: The Violin Sonatas'

BIS Records has announced the release of Norwegian violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing's new album: 'Grieg: The Violin Sonatas.'

Recorded with pianist Simon Trpčeski, the disc features Grieg's Violin Sonata No. 1 in F Major Op. 8, Violin Sonata No. 2 in G Major Op. 13, Violin Sonata No. 3 in C Minor Op. 45, and Eldbjørg's original work, 'Homecoming' for Violin & Piano - based on traditional Norwegian folk tunes.



''Edvard Grieg is a name I have heard for as long as I can remember, and for me, his music is the sound of my childhood in many ways ..." Eldbjørg has told The Violin Channel.

"I have always loved the purity and lyricism of Grieg's music and to finally have the opportunity to record the three sonata works is for me both exciting, as well as a little intimidating - especially given how iconic they are ..." she has said.

"I hope this CD will inspire listeners to explore the works of Edvard Grieg and of all the great Norwegian composers ... our music is so wonderfully linked and inspired by our rich folk music heritage.
