On the 7th of January 2022, the first single "In the Hall of the Mountain King" was released from her new upcoming album PEER GYNT! Available on all music streaming platforms: here For her second album on Berlin Classics the Norwegian violinist and Hardanger fiddle player Ragnhild Hemsing has taken on one of Norway's most famous and legendary figures: Peer Gynt. She is not part of the original orchestration, but has selected sections of Peer Gynt's theater play music, op. 23 arranged for her solo instruments, hardanger fiddle and violin, together with the string orchestra Trondheim Soloists - thus establishing the connection between Peer Gynt's traditional story and Norwegian folk music.
