cd cover Majorstuen
Majorstuen (2L - Lindberg Lyd, Norway)

Norwegian fiddlers rule the world, and this CD is solid proof. This is vital stuff, brilliant performances, beautifully recorded and altogether essential listening for anyone with a love of the Nordic fiddle sound.

These recordings were all made live, recorded in a church near Oslo, so the ambiance of the performances and the aural space are really wonderful!


The musicians:

The record label says:
In between the worlds of folklore and classical, where pulsating energetic monody meets the polyphonic, polytonal and rhythmically intricate melody we encounter the Norwegian group “Majorstuen”. This young and creative ensemble succeeds in utilising the totality of artistic ingredients within the Norwegian musical heritage, thus producing breathtaking new perspectives. We get it all: From melancholic inspired fiddle-tunes, good-natured folk dance parodies to astonishingly pointed and vital new compositions.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
