MALGORZATA MILEWSKA SUNDBERG, harpe og ARILD ANDERSEN, fløyte
We have performed together as a flute and harp duo on numerous occasions.
Over time, we have expanded our repertoire, the result of which can be heard on this album. Flute and harp are centuries-old instruments with a long history of technical evolution. Together they make an interesting combination, whose sound appeals to audiences even today. Except for Greensleeves, all the pieces presented here have been composed for flute and harp. The idea behind the selection is to present compositions inspired
by the instruments’ ancient histories and by folk tunes,
but also benefiting from the technical evolution of the instruments.
Our modern concert instruments, combined with appropriately applied techniques
and sonoristic effects, allow us to bring out the original intentions of the composers
and so bridge the gap between the old and the modern.
