Info for Over Tones

Over Tones” ist das ECM-Debüt zweier außergewöhnlicher Folkmusikerinnen aus dem Westen Norwegens – Benedicte Maurseth, die die Hardangerfiedel spielt und singt, und der Sängerin Åsne Valland Nordli. Beide Musikerinnen haben sich in ihrem Heimatland bereits einen Namen gemacht.

Maurseth studierte bei dem Meister der Hardangerfiedel Knut Hamre, und wurde 2007 als „Norwegens junge Folkmusikerin des Jahres“ einem breiteren Publikum bekannt. Nordli hat sowohl mit Musikern der Philharmonischen Orchesters von‚ Bergen als auch mit Jazzimprovisatoren gearbeitet.

Jede für sich und beide zusammen haben sie sehr persönliche Wege gefunden, die Essenz einer großen Tradition zu erweitern – durch die historisch informierte Interpretation Alter Musik, aber auch durch ihre eigenen Stücke. Die Reinheit ihres Ausdrucks, in der Alten Musik wie in den neuen Stücken gleichermaßen, macht dies zu einer zeitlosen Darbietung.

Benedicte Maurseth
born 1983 in Eidfjord in Hardanger studied with Hardanger fiddle master Knut Hamre, and also at the Ole Bull Academy. She came to wider attention in 2007 when she was named Norway’s Young Folk Musician of the Year. In 2006 she and Knut Hamre, together with Nils Økland and Sigbjørn Apeland (both of whom have appeared on ECM), released their CD/DVD Rosa i botnen (HCD7206), a pioneering project in the field of Norwegian folk music for which they performed in an old style of fiddling on historic Hardanger fiddles from the 17th and 18th centuries. Maurseth has also recorded a solo album for the Heilo label, Alde (HCD7259).

Åsne Valland Nordli
born in 1975 comes from Norheimsund in the Hardanger region and is renowned for the bell-like clarity and beauty of her voice. She began singing in public at the age of 10, was already teaching at the Ole Bull Academy at 14, and has collaborated with musicians ranging from the Bergen Philharmonic to jazz improvisers. Among her several recordings are two for Norway’s Via Music, Lille Messias and Himmelske balsam og Sødeste Drue. Nordli has also appeared on Hardanger fiddler Nils Økland’s release Straum (Rune Grammofon).
