“Norwegian artist Ragnhild Hemsing is equally talented as a violinist and an exponent of the Hardanger fiddle…YR is played engagingly, with Hemsing managing once again to draw you into an uniquely mesmeric soundworld”.
ERIK LEVI, BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, April 2012


“Ragnhild Hemsing is destined for great things. She brings a youthful freshness and exuberant spontaneity to Grieg’s F major Sonata.. In her skilled and deft hands, the various drone effects possess an emotional resonance that lingers long after the music has stopped.”
JULIAN HAYLOCK, THE STRAD, FEBRUARY 2012


“Ragnhild Hemsing is the nimble-fingered soloist, most vividly in the concluding Fanitullen.”
GUY RICKARDS, GRAMOPHONE, JUNE 2011


” Ragnhild Hemsing, only 23 years old and already an internationally established violin virtuoso. Her violinistic competence was shown in a multitude of technical and emotional moments. Her tone has juicy sweetness of sheer depth, noble dignity and vivid ease.. Showing an artist who is equally extrovert and introvert, that presented the music to us such as we see in different, likeable handwriting. Modern or Romantic.. ”
HANS-JÖRG LOSKILL, WESTDEUTSCHE ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG, APRIL 18TH 2011


“Ragnhild plays incredibly well! Yr is an unusually difficult piece to play, and she does it brilliantly.”
COMPOSER LASSE THORESEN, AFTENPOSTEN, MAY 2009
