Carl Nielsen is the most influential and distinguished composer coming from Denmark. He was born in quiet Fyn, but quickly showed the talent and potential that made him one of the most prominent Scandinavian composers. Later it became Carl Nielsen's profession, as a violinist in Det Kgl. Kapel. As a composer, it was natural for him to write for the violin, and the works show his profound knowledge of the instrument.

Hasse Borup is educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Music, but lives in the U.S today as a violin professor at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, alongside pianist Andrew Staupe.

The two are on tour with this Carl Nielsen project, which in addition to concerts also includes a recording. The uniqueness of the project is that it contains the earliest works, such as the Romance in G-major and D-major and the Sonata in G-major. These works will be put together with more well-known works such as Sonata no 1. op. 9 and no. 2 op. 35, as well as the Prelude and Presto op. 52, and Prelude and Theme with Variations, op. 48, both for solo violin.
