Notes & Reviews:

Norwegian violin music dates back to the country's traditional folk instrument, the Hardanger fiddle. The oldest surviving fiddle dates from the early 1650s, its construction significantly different from the normal violin. Almost two hundred years later it inspired the violinist Ole Bull to write works based on melodies he heard folk musicians playing on the instrument. It was largely his influence that led to the delightful works included on this disc.
