Originally, this album was intended to be Eldbjørg Hemsing’s recording debut, but the repertoire interest in what became her debut (a forgotten romantic concerto by Borgström coupled with Shostakovich) led to a change of plans. Rarely has a recording debut had the impact of Eldbjørg’s debut album - and she has since been catapulted into international awareness in a very short time. On this release, the second in a projected long series, Eldbjørg Hemsing, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra (previously the Royal Flemish Symphony Orchestra) and Alan Buribayev explore an all-Czech programme.

A champion of Norway’s rich musical tradition, Eldbjørg Hemsing has been performing on some of the world’s most prestigious stages since age 11, when she made her solo debut with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. Her violin playing represents a unique blend of classic Viennese sound, drawn from her lessons with Boris Kuschnier; a contemporary sensibility absorbed through numerous projects with the Oscar-winning composer Tan Dun; and a deep affinity with her Scandinavian heritage that she proudly showcases in every aspect of her active musical life.
