Violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing was already a household name in her native country when she began championing Norwegian masterworks like Borgstrøm’s Violin Concerto, a late Romantic tribute to the country’s arresting mountains, valleys, and fjords. Also capturing the landscape and folk spirit of Norway is the world premiere collaboration: Yukichi Hattori choreographs Music Director Rune Bergmann’s favourite selections from Peer Gynt!
