MUSICANS Olov Johansson: Nyckelharpa Johan Hedin: Nyckelharpa Ola Hertzberg: Nyckelharpa Markus Svensson: Nyckelharpa Niklas Roswall: Nyckelharpa Henrik Eriksson: Nyckelharpa
On their first recording (DROCD006) Nyckelharpsorkestern played the music of Eric Sahlström. On this their second album they go further back to the music of Byss-Calle (1783-1847). Nyckelharpa hits from the first half of the 19th century, mostly dance tunes, are presented here in varied arrangements by six of todayís best young players: Henrik Eriksson, Johan Hedin, Ola Hertzberg, Olov Johansson, Niklas Roswall and Markus Svensson. We hear them playing modern nyckelharpas of various sizes, as well as the older kontrabasharpa and moraharpa. This album contains a delightful mix of tracks: some solos and some involving two or more members of the group.
