Description: Just six months ago, we offered a Bull disc on the ridiculously expensive 2L Blu-ray + SACD double disc format. Now people who are not flush enough to dump $30 for only one disc they can actually play, can sample this remarkable Norwegian violinist-composer. If you think of Paganini with a Scandinavian accent, you'll get an idea of Bull's music which often refers to Norwegian folk melodies. Arve Tellefsen (violin), Trondheim Symphony Orchestra; Eivind Aadland, Håvard Gimse (piano).
