ELDBJØRG HEMSING - VIOLINIST

ELDBJØRG HEMSING 艾荷茗
具有挪威音乐传统底蕴的艾荷茗(Eldbjørg Hemsing),在本国从小就家喻户晓,年仅11岁便与挪威卑尔根爱乐乐团合作进行独奏。在维也纳小提琴大师鲍里斯·库什涅(Boris Kuschnir)的精心教导之下,艾荷茗陆续登上了国内外各大舞台,在此过程中,不断地改进其表演风格,专注从贝多芬、德沃夏克(Dvořák)、格里格(Grieg)到谭盾的知名曲目中学习,因此可以演奏多元化的音乐风格。
中国著名作曲家谭盾在2010年上海世博会首次与挪威小提琴家艾荷茗(Eldbjørg Hemsing)合作。艾荷茗联合特隆赫姆交响乐团演奏的谭盾《Love》协奏曲为此次世博会拉开了序幕。在过去的8年中,艾女士还首演《Hero》协奏曲(与MDR莱比锡和荷兰交响乐团),《Triple Resurrection》协奏曲(在莱比锡和上海与上海爱乐乐团),最近也在北京国家大剧院和中国民族管弦乐队首演了《Fire Rituals》协奏曲。《Fire Rituals》协奏曲的首演之所以是一个历史性的时刻,是因为艾女士为第一个与中国民族管弦的西方音乐家。
在与奥斯卡获奖作曲家谭盾进行了8年富有成果的合作之后,艾女士将谭盾的最新小提琴曲目《Two Rhapsodies》作为开场演出。在2018年9月的Ultima Festival上,此曲目将在奥斯陆爱乐乐团的演出中由谭盾亲自指挥完成,BIS唱片公司将对此进行录制。
艾荷茗在Dextra音乐基金会的帮助下,得以使用1754年制作的瓜达尼尼小提琴进行演奏,并且Göhde基金会对艾荷茗长远的艺术发展进行了慷慨的资助。

ELDBJØRG HEMSING DEBUT CD REVIEWS:

“…an outstanding artist with a warm tone, accurate and precise playing. Eldbjørg Hemsing gives the second movement, the Scherzo, a bewitching and hypnotic interpretation, unforgettable. The other three movements, in the pure style of the Russian musician, place this perfectly controlled version at the level of the greatest recordings (David Oistrach, Maxime Shostakovich, EMI, 1972, Lydia Mordkovich, Neeme Jarvi, Chandos, 1989, Yefim Bronfman, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Sony, 2003). The Vienna Symphony, conducted by the rigorous and experienced Estonian Olari Elts (born in 1971), shares the outstanding merits and contributes to making this recording a subject of legitimate lust and curiosity.” – 1 May 2018

“Wonderfully played […], Eldbjørg Hemsing’s dynamism and rich, warm tone exactly what the concerto needs. She’s really impressive.” – 28 April 2018

“… the young and compellingly fresh articulating violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing has digged out the three-movement violin concerto of Borgström, recording the work with Vienna Symphony Orchestra under Olari Elts – not only as noble pioneering feat, but in violinistic and musically gorgeous manner.“ – 17 April 2018

Rating – 5/5 Stars | Magnificent: “For the concerto of Shostakovich which was dedicated to the marvelous David Oistrach, this violinist must expect comparisons – which she in fact all does not need to shun! Can one play this great violin concerto in such superb manner with 28 years of age? Eldbjørg Hemsing can!“ – 12 April 2018

“Hemsing delivers a true top performance in both of these concertos. Enthusiasm, imagination, energy, finesse, sharpness, lyricism, brilliance: it is all there, with the highly engaged Estonian conductor Olari Elts who shows the Vienna Symphony, so to speak, all corners of the hall. Of course, Borgström’s Violin Concerto is the ‘ear-opener’ here, but I was also overwhelmed by the expressive dimensions of the interpretation in Shostakovich’s first violin concerto.“ – 19 March 2018

“The timbres are varied, full of warmth and brilliant registers, and how Hemsing deals with this centuries-old richness [of her G.B. Guadagnini from 1764] is masterful: attuned to the characteristics of the violin and alert in her response to them, subtle in sound and astute in accentuation. Every vibrato, every tempo is well thought out and Hemsing highlights the Shostakovich concerto both in its extended lamentation and grim ferocity, without ever overstating. The Borgström, on the other hand, she develops into a sparkling, self-assured, almost indomitable momentum. The result is a uniquely delicate musical balance between the two concertos, the axis between them is Hemsing’s unmistakable and consistent colour. This is vivacious and at the same time very mature.” – 15 March 2018

Holger Wemhoff, Klassik Radio | 8. März 2018: “…in the meanwhile she [Eldbjørg Hemsing] is regarded as one of the best and greatest young hopes, not only of her country Norway, but of the entire world. And that can especially be heard in her new, her debut CD.”  –  Holger Wemhoff | 12 March 2018: “One of the best violin recordings of the past years.”

“…a brilliantly successful debut… whether it is the elegiac Nocturne, the virtuoso tricky Scherzo, the breathtaking solo cadenza in the 3rd movement, or the Burlesque which is tumbling between exuberant euphoria and treipdation, Hemsing in each case gives the adequate note. A joint triumph of Shostakovich’ genuine creativiness and the verve of the young artist who translates this music-historical monument into moving sounds.“ – 6 March 2018

“The wonderful Violin Concerto in G major op. 14 from 1914 is a real hit, and you can be thankful to the Swedish label BIS for letting the work now appear at its best. The solo part is played by the fabulous young Norwegian Eldbjørg Hemsing: she impresses with a brilliant technique, her tone is bright and soft – and the grandeur of a free violinist soul is enthroned above everything. The 27-year-old artist, of whom there is still a great deal to hear, brings the work, which one can hear wonderfully carefree, so to speak, back into the repertoire. The Wiener Symphoniker, under the direction of Olari Elts, assists masterfully. This SACD is rounded off by a no less impressive performance of the Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor by Dmitri Shostakovich, which captures the edges and abysses of the music.“ – 5 March 2018

“…with her supreme violinistic ease, sprightly personality and wonderfully clear and pure lyrical tone (2nd movement), the violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing transforms this repertoire rarity [Borgström violin concerto] into a worthwhile rediscovery or new discovery. Hemsing’s mastery of the entire Shostakovich spectrum, from gloomy bitterness to grotesquely-virtuosic agility, is then demonstrated in her collaboration with the highly committed Wiener Symphoniker.“ – 3 March 2018

…jointly with Wiener Symphoniker and Olari Elts, Hemsing presents an interpretation which is convincing, rich of colors and personal. With consistently brilliant sound and flexible expression, Eldbjørg Hemsing makes this album absolutely worth listening to.” – 20 February 2018

Rating – 6/6 Stars: “… a fabulous discovery … [Hemsing] offers a star performance, technically steady as a mountain goat, bold and assertive where required and sweetly filled like spun sugar in the slow movement … this recording is strongly recommended.​”​- 14 February 2018
