Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
- Daniel Herskedal and Marius Neset are two astonishingly gifted and formidable musicians who share a commanding sound, exemplary technique and astonishing musicianship. Together they have created Neck of the Woods, an album that resonates beautifully, combining soaring, uplifting melodies with an extraordinary energy and energising charm. Featuring the rich voices of the Svanholm Singers on three tracks, Neck of the Woods goes far beyond easy categorisation and while resolutely rooted in the Norwegian tradition, the album explores influences from classical and folk music, but always with an underlying jazz sensibility.
In April 2011 Marius Neset burst onto the UK scene with his debut Golden Xplosion. Since then he has developed a formidable reputation as one of the most exciting musicians to emerge on the European scene in the last decade winning rave reviews for both his album and firepower live performances. Tubist Daniel Herskedal is no less equipped, regarded in Scandinavia as a virtuoso instrumentalist and visionary composer demonstrating that the tuba is worthy as a front line instrument.
