Lorentz Hop
Hardangar Fiddle (NOR-CD, Norway)

cd cover

Lorentz Hop lived from 1887 to 1954 and was one of Norwayīs leading Hardanger fiddle players in his time. He was from Fana near Bergen. From 1930 until he died in 1954, Hop toured and played in Norway and abroad. The music dates from the 17th century. The Hardanger fiddle music from western Norway has power, strong heavy rhythms, and a very rich explorative tonality. Lorentz Hop is a sound from the past - with something to tell us, today.

These recordings were made by The Norwegian Broadcasting System, Oslo, Norway, in 1946,1947 and 1951.

Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and we are not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever we can, we used recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
