Notes & Reviews:

The works on this recording are written by composers who themselves played the violin. The three works differ greatly from one another, yet each is expressive, idiomatic, and reveals close connections to a living performance tradition. Sisters Elise & Henninge have played together for more than 30 years, and the repertoire heard here has been a part of their musical upbringing. Elise and Henninge are first concertmaster and co-principal viola, respectively, of the Oslo Philharmonic.
