This is Vilde Frang's debut album, at the age of 22. The Norwegian-born violinist has chosen three of Sibelius' elusive miniatures as rarely heard companions to his fire-and-ice Violin Concerto and the tenderly voiced soul of another Northern masterpiece, Prokofiev's First Concerto.

Stephen Johns, Vice President of A&R, EMI Classics, says: “Vilde Frang is a brilliant young violinist and a protégée of Anne Sophie Mutter. It was Vilde’s performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto that first caught our attention. Her special and unique voice, coupled with playing of great fervour and depth, promises a brilliant debut disc.

Born in Norway in 1986, Vilde Frang began her studies at Oslo’s Barratt-Due Institute of Music and subsequently worked with Kolja Blacher at the Hamburg Musikhochschule.

After making her debut at the age of ten with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Vilde was engaged by Mariss Jansons to perform with the Oslo Philharmonic. Since then, she has been a soloist with orchestras in Scandinavia, England, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Baltic countries, the U.S., Singapore and Taiwan.
