One of the most charismatic and leading young violinists on the international scene today, Eldbjørg Hemsing is acclaimed for her “radiant and sophisticated performances” (BBC Music Magazine) and is a musician committed to bringing her art form to new and emerging audiences across the globe. Her international career took off quickly, leading to four award-winning albums and world premieres of numerous compositions in many of the greatest halls of the world.
The 2023/24 season sees her appear with Iceland Symphony Orchestra under Yan Pascal Tortelier and return to Trondheim Symfoniorkester, alongside engagements with Den Norske Opera and Xi’an Symphony Orchestra. In addition to classical repertoire, Eldbjørg Hemsing is strongly dedicated to contemporary Nordic music, and will perform Anders Hillborg’s Violin Concerto No.2 with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Esa-Pekka Salonen, a project that follows last season’s recording of Rolf Wallin’s Whirld Violin Concerto with Stavanger Symphony Orchestra under Andris Poga. Duo recitals and chamber music programmes in trio with Daniel Müller-Schott and Martin Stadtfeld take her to Germany for the Dresden Music Festival and the Heidelberger Frühling Festival, to Bærum in Norway and to the US.
