Notes & Reviews:

"YR" is the debut of an artist with a dynamite personality that is audible in every stroke of the bow. Combining traditional Hardanger fiddle playing and a classical approach at this level is done by few others that Ragnhild Hemsing. In his mesmerizing piece for solo violin YR - a word that denotes both giddiness and a drizzling kind of rain - Lasse Thoresen lets traditional archaic building blocks come together as a contemporary way of expression. Here the exceptional qualities of Ragnhild's background comes to the fore, indeed the composer has stated that "Ragnhild plays incredibly, fabulously well!" Together with folk dancer Hallgrim Hansegård she has developed the piece into a stunning stage performance, which is also included on the release as a video.
