Eldbjørg Hemsing’s new recording release Grieg Violin Sonatas together with the acclaimed Macedonian pianist Simon Trčeski on BIS Records received a praising review by Harald Eggebrecht in the Süddeutsche Zeitung´s Klassikkolumne.
“The violin tone of the young Norwegian Eldbjørg Hemsing has something spacious, immediate, unseen, nothing pretentious about it. This goes wonderfully with the three violin sonatas by Edvard Grieg. Hemsing and her piano partner Simon Trčeski do not doubt for a second the quality, intensity, imagination and touching beauty of this music, which is pulsating with a sense of landscape, natural sensations and passion. One can really say that [Eldbjørg] plays so brilliantly and convincingly in her “mother tongue” that it must captivate everyone. The violinist’s joy in inventing music is demonstrated by her fine variations on a folk tune.”
