Episode #3349

From the North

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

For this New Sounds, head to the north with music from Scandinavian composers, and works from Iceland.  Listen to music by Swedish nyckelharpa innovator Johan Hedin from the record “Angel Archipelago," together with an all-star cast of Scandinavian music luminaries like multi-instrumentalist Ale Möller, accordionist Maria Kalaniemi, electronics man Frode Fjellheim, and horn player Jonas Knutsson.

Also, hear music by Norwegian guitarist and composer Terje Rypdal, something from Icelandic film composer and musician Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, and music by Ketil Bjornstad.  Perhaps there will be time enough for Swedish folk group Norrlåtar, who draw on jazz, klezmer and Balkan bands, and something from Norwegian saxophonist/composer Jan Garbarek as well.
