Over Tones (2014)
Benedicte Maurseth: Hardanger fiddle, vocals
Åsne Valland Nordli: vocals
Over Tones is the highly attractive ECM debut of two exceptional folk musicians from the West of Norway - Benedicte Maurseth who plays the Hardanger fiddle and sings, and vocalist Åsne Valland Nordli.
The pair have found personal ways to extend the essence of a great tradition - through historically-informed interpretation of old music and also through their own pieces. The purity of the delivery, of old music and new music alike, makes this a timeless performance.
