Press from the record label:
Gunnar Idenstam, organ and Johan Hedin, keyed fiddle, play tunes, reels and other dances in eighteenth-century late Baroque style, a waltz tinged with the Spanish Renaissance, another dance from Italy and a number of compositions by the musicians themselves. The music has characteristics of rock, reggae, medieval music and gospel.

Gunnar Idenstam is a freelance concert organist, composer and folk musician. He gives concerts all over the world. As a folk musician he seems to be unique - in his manner of transferring the genuine Swedish fiddler tradition to the church organ or to the pump organ and the keyboard.

Johan Hedin (who just recently released a solo CD, Innersta polskan - Innermost Reel), on another record label, grew up in the province of Småland, in an area where folk music was cultivated. Johan often plays in groups where different genres meet and are inspired by one another, as in the trio Bazar Blå (Bazar Blue). He has also put a lot of work into developing the keyed fiddle´s construction. Johan has also composed music for the keyed fiddle.

Listen - and you will hear that Swedish folk music and the Baroque have many features in common!

The CD is a hybrid multichannel SACD (Super Audio CD) and can also be played on any standard CD player.

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.
