Following his 2001 disc of works by Arne Nordheim, Norwegian violinist Peter Herresthal and BIS have collaborated on the project ’A String of Releases’ – recordings of contemporary violin concertos, in several cases written especially for Herresthal.

The present, amply-filled addition to Herresthal’s ‘string’ features the composers Rolf Wallin and Eivind Buene. Both composers are represented by a violin concerto for violin and orchestra and one piece for sinfonietta. The CD, nominated for the Spellemann 2017 (the “Norwegian Grammy awards”).
