Eldbjørg Hemsing has established herself as one of the most exciting violinists of her generation. Since her debut performance for the Norwegian Royal Family at the age of 6 and the orchestra solo debut with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 11, she has performed with leading orchestras such as Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Wiener Symphoniker, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, MDR Radio Symphony Orchestra Leipzig, NDR Radio Symphony Orchestra Hannover, Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra Ireland, Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Norwegian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Ukrainian National Philharmonic Orchestra and many more.
Eldbjørg Hemsing is praised for her “exceptional sound” (Christian Schulz, Wiener Symphoniker) as well as the ability to connect with the audience. She has developed a close collaboration with a renowned composer and conductor Tan Dun. She also performed his Hero Concerto, as well as premiered his composition ‘Triple Ressurrection’ (MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra) and violin concerto ‘The Love’ (Trondheim Symphony Orchestra as part of the World Expo in Shangai).
In 2014 Eldbjørg rediscovered Hjalmar Borgstrøm’s only and for over 100 years forgotten violin concerto. She made her debut recording with Wiener Symphoniker and conductor Olari Elts, where she recorded both Borgstrøm violin concerto and Shostakovich violin concerto no. 1. She also recorded an all-Czech album for BIS Records with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra and Alan Buribayev.
Eldbjørg is a recipient of several international prizes and distinctions. She is based in Berlin and plays a GB Guadagnini violin from 1754, generously loaned from the Dextra Musica Foundation.
Eldbjørg Hemsing is part of the Arts Primavera general management, with Scandinavian representation by Matic Gajšek.
