Finn Coren releases his new album På jorden et sted

Today the musician Finn Coren releases his album På jorden et sted – Utvalgte nordiske dikt (‘Somewhere on Earth – Selected Nordic Poems’), where I appear on some tracks with Hardanger fiddle and kankle.

Finn Coren has composed music to poems by famous Nordic poets, including Inger Hagerup, Tarjei Vesaas, Tor Jonsson, Hans Børli, Karin Boye and Pär Lagerkvist.

One of the tracks I play on, Lägerkvist’s “Det är vackrast när det skymmer”, you can listen to at this YouTube-link.

It is a great pleasure and honour to cooperate with Coren, an acclaimed musician and a great artist. More about the album at Coren’s Facebook page, and official web site.
