Tune of the Day: Sæterjentens Søndag

by Norwegian violinist Ole Bull

The piece we present today is probably Ole Bull's best known composition. It is known under a few different titles in different languages, but the most common title is the original “Sæterjentens Søndag”, which in Norwegian means “The Herdgirl's Sunday”. This work originally formed part of a Fantasy for strings composed in 1848, but eventually affirmed itself as a standalone piece.

Thanks to Gil for suggesting this piece, and thanks again to Thor for letting us discover Ole Bull and his wonderful music.
