Release of new album on 2L

NEW RECORDING: Ragnhild Hemsing´s new recording Northern Timbre together with pianist Tor Espen Aspaas was released in May 2017 on label 2L.

Repertoire: Nordic programme with works for Violin and Piano by Edvard Grieg, Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius


Edvard Grieg (1843–1907), Carl Nielsen (1865–1931) and Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) are generally recognized as the Nordic countries' most important composers. Nielsen and Sibelius were both inspired and influenced in their early years by Grieg's music. Their idiom was strongly Romantic, but they managed to create a distinct "Nordic Sound" in which national elements combined with the broader European tradition. This album not only shows this, but also probes the way they were inspired by one another. Moreover, the works on this album are among our personal favourites, with a Northern Timbre we feel resonates, no matter where you are. - Ragnhild Hemsing & Tor Espen Aspaas
