"PEER GYNT" album release - Ragnhild Hemsing

On February 25th 2022, the new album PEER GYNT by Ragnhild Hemsing will be released on the Berlin Classics label.
Together with the wonderful chamber orchestra Trondheim Soloists, Hemsing has recorded a completely new arrangement of the drama music "Peer Gynt" by Edvard Grieg. For a long time, Ragnhild Hemsing had wanted to transcribe the music of Peer Gynt also on the Hardanger fiddle: "I thought that parts of the music would fit perfectly on the Hardanger fiddle in combination with solo violin and string orchestra. But I wanted to dive deeper into the material, fully aware that folk music and the Hardanger fiddle were sources of inspiration for it."

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 Trondheimsolistene - thus establishing the connection between Peer Gynt's traditional story and Norwegian folk music.
