MR 6 "Houseconcert i Aurskog" - Karin Krog with Den Norske strykekvartett, Einar Henning Smebye, Mats Berglund and John Surman.
Recorded in Oslo in1995 with engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug.
Karin Krog's recordings of her great grandfather Anders Heyerdal's Norwegian folk music. Anders Heyerdal (1832-1918) was a violinplayer and composer. This CD contains folkmusic collected and written down by Anders Heyerdahl, and performed by Krog, fiddler Mads Berglund and John Surman on sopranosax and clarinets a la Carte. Heyerdahl also composed some piano pieces and we hear them played here by Einar Henning Smebye. We also hear his string quartet no.1 played by Den Norske Strykekvartett. Hearing this music, we go back in time and pretend we are guests in a big countryhouse attending a houseconsert with music by Heyerdahl.
