I watched this documentary about the Norwegian violinist Ole Bull on Swedish television for about a year ago and I really enjoyed it. I occasionally stumbled over this link yesterday and I can not withhold it for you all. Interesting story and great violin playing of the Hemsing sisters.

Thanks for this one! I was actually at a concert with Eldbjørg Hemsing for a couple of months ago and I enjoyed it very much. I look forward to see this documentary :)

Both Eldbjørg and her sister Ragnhild are very talented. I would also like to see them in a concert.

Thank you very much for this! Ole Bull is my 2nd most favourite violinist, and his Ole Bull Del Gesu has the longest FF holes I've ever seen, also my 2nd most favourite violin :)

cheers! - ⁰ℨ

Let me guess - Paganini is your favourite :-)
