Product description

Product Description

Conceived by the baroque violinist Bjarte Eike this programme is his personal 'image of melancholy' - 'for me, melancholy is not only synonymous with sadness and despair, it is a state also harbouring reflection, meditation and relief.'

This music does not belong to any particular style, but forms a musical matrimony between Nordic folk, the rich sounds of the Elizabethan consort and a modern approach to music-making (soundscapes by Jon Blake).

Review

'It's probable that you'll be smiling more than frowning as this disc works its subtle magic. At the way in which Eike's opening, musing Savn flows seamlessly into a beautiful transcription of Holborne's The Image of Melancholy, and you feel as if the sun's just emerged from behind a cloud. Eike's unaffected, vibrato-free playing style is a joy...Unmissable.' --The Arts Desk, 08/02/2014

'Amid many tears and much lamenting, a musical entrée arises that causes he gently stringed music lover much rejoicing.' **** --Auditorium Magazine, Spring 2014
