About the album

Ever since first performing Bottesini’s Gran Duo Concertante in Bodin Church in Bodø, we have dreamed of recording this crazy, yet brilliant work. And when presented with the chance to use the Norwegian Radio Orchestra (KORK), Norway’s most convivial orchestra, with our long-time hero and good friend Terje Boye Hansen as conductor, it was an opportunity too good to pass up.
This recording was made in the main studio of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) over the course of a fantastic week in the autumn of 2013, and it is flavoured with some of our favourite works. Knut Erik plays Bottesini’s Grande Allegro ”Alla Mendelssohn”, and Arvid offers his renditions of three gems for violin and orchestra: the violin romances of Johan Svendsen and Hjalmar Borgstrøm, together with Henryk Wieniawsky’s Polonaise Brillante.
