Spel under Norefjell 2 CD set (Ta:lik)
$21.99

Truls Ørpen (1880-1958) was from the region of Krødsherad, in Norway. He is considered one of the masters of hardingfele (hardangar fiddle), who in turn learned is craft from two earlier masters, Torkjell Haugerud and Gunnulf Borgen of Telemark. The first CD is music from Krødsherad and incluudes a video clip from the 50's. The second CD features music from Telemark and Numedal and ends with original compositions by Ørpen himself, eight tunes in some unorthodix tunings. These recordings are all from the archives of Norwegian radio NRK, recorded from the 1930s through the 1950s.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am 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 I can, I use 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.
