  • About the composer +
    • Ole Bornemann Bull is a Norwegian violinist and composer from Bergen and earned admiration in Norway as a great national figure. He lived from about 1810 to 1880 and had a large influence on Edvard Grieg, also from the same hometown of Bergen, Norway. In 1835, Ole Bornemann Bull was allowed to play at the Paris Opera, where only Paganini had previously received permission to give a solo concert. He was now launched on his lifelong career as a travelling virtuoso. He journeyed all over Europe and in 1840 he played Beethoven’s Kreutzer sonata in London, together with Liszt at the piano. He toured all the large cities in the United States, and also visited Canada and Cuba. Few of his compositions have survived. Best known is Solitude (The Dairymaid’s Sunday) (Sæterjentens Søndag), usually played in a string arrangement by Johan Svendsen.
