This is nyckelharpa. Just a nyckelharpa. No other instruments. This is a bit unusual. Nyckelharpa nowadays is mostly played as part of a group, several nyckelharpas together and maybe some other instruments too. I think this is good. It's an instrument whose sound fits well with many other instruments. But for me, harpa playing is something deeper. The nyckelharpa's decidedly unique voice, its double stops and myriad of small details, multiple nuances which go unnoticed when you play as part of a group, for example. The reason I decided to make this cd was to give you a chance to hear the beauty of just a single nyckelharpa and hopefully appreciate how it can sound. This instrument is truly worth hearing!
