Mari Eggen - Helene Høye
Glød (Glow) (2L, Norway)
Two Norwegian fiddlers bring together a high level of musianship and a lively sense of the tradition in a series of folk tunes and tunes inspired by the Norwegian fiddle heritage.
The record label says:
For centuries, Norway's dark winter days and luminous summer nights have inspired the diverse forms of creativity of its folk artists. Troll lore and nature mysticism spring from the interplay of light and darkness on the fertile imagination, and light in its many manifestations has always been a central element of Norwegian painting and music. An intense dark glow permeates the music presented on this CD by two distinguished artists. In their tightly arranged renderings the vigor and poetic feeling of the folk music tradition is fused with a bold and skillful use of polyphonic texture, bearing witness to the power inherent in a living tradition.
