Review Vårt Land: I sansingenes rike (NO)

Fiolinisten Eldbjørg Hemsing er for anledningen kledd i en slags huldrehabitt, sikkert ikke bevisst. Men det er jo nettopp denne mytiske fornemmelsen du får av tonene i hennes nye innspilling av Griegs sonater. Av Olav Egil Aune – Vårt Land Vi liker å ha Grieg på vår måte, her oppe i røysa. Fiolinisten Eldbjørg Hemsing […]

Norwegian violin princess Eldbjørg Hemsing already made a name for herself as an archaeologist when she successfully excavated the unconventional, surprisingly attractive […]

November 2018 Dvořák’s sole Violin Concerto is not among his most free-flowingly spontaneous scores. It took him four years (on and off) to complete, by which time the intended dedicatee Joseph Joachim had grown tired of the project and, […]

Review: Dvořák & Suk Recording in Concerti (DE)

Effortless Intensity Eckhard Weber | Concerti | 8. November 2018 She practically grew up with this work, she says. Indeed, young violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing feels noticeably at home in Dvořák’s Violin Concerto. The way she makes her instrument sing with an amazingly nuanced and beguiling tone full of vibrancy has compelling intensity. Nothing sounds laboured […]

Review: Dvořák&Suk Recording in Süddeutsche (DE)

“…mit der 28 Jahre alten Eldbjørg Hemsing begeistert nun wieder eine junge Geigerin aus Norwegen. Hemsing ist nicht nur eine feinsinnige und kluge Interpretin, sie entlockt ihrer Guadagnini auch einen sehr persönlichen, unverwechselbaren Geigenton. Zart, intim und filigran wirkt er im Kern, dabei aber selbst im gehauchten Piano noch sinnlich und klangvoll.” Julia Spinola | […]
