Annbjørg Lien's second recording provides her best opportunity yet to display her own creativity in playing and composition. With the arrangements by Bjørn Ole Rasch she plays 13 songs including the spirited Korstog, the contemplative Cantabile, the title cut, Prisme, and Vidvandre. Her composition skills may not, however, match her mastery of the instrument. To hear more heartful playing by her you may want to check out recordings by the group, Bukkene Bruse, particularly their first recording. Still, the Lien fan will not want to miss these 51 minutes of talent from one of Norway's most famous exporters of hardanger fiddle music.

Annbjorg Lien is obviously a very significant talent. She is sure to bring the sounds of the hardanger fiddle (it sounds something like a raspy viola--not bad raspy, edgy raspy) to a much wider audience. Earlier recordings had Lien playing a more restrained, "traditional" kind of style, with less additional instrumental backing. "Prisme," by contrast, is practically pop music, though it never loses the level of sincerity one expects from a thinking musician. Imagine an album full of driving, folk-primordial instrumental dances and the like cousin to the Grieg of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King,' and you're most of the way there. Mixed in, to provide the appropriate contrasts, are two or three much slower, contemplative melodic cuts as well. Excellent stuff! Buy it!

I love Annbjorg's music and have several of her CD's. This is my favorite next to Felefeber. I also like Baba Yaga except for some creepy throat singing. (Nordic vocals don't do a thing for me in general). Prisme is pure instrumental with some occasional background chants. Play this music when the snow is falling for a feeling of nature's true mastery! These are some of the finest musicians in the world and I wish Annbjorg would do a US tour. I'd drive 500 miles to catch her show!

I had discovered Annbjørg Lien, after having purchased a copy of String Sisters Live In Concert and was intrigued. I checked her music on youtube.com, and was hooked. This album is simply incredibly featuring even more great music.

These 13 traditional instrumental dances are made more interesting by the fine fiddle playing of Annbjørg Lien and other unusual instruments such as the kantele and the "Swedish bouzouki." Fine musicianship throughout, and the production makes it sound as if it were recorded in a fjord. This is enhanced further still by the addition of a pipe organ and samples. This combination of new and old sounds is somewhat reminiscent of the Celtic revival recordings of Alan Stivell.

It occurs to me that this would make an ideal Christmas gift to anyone for whom the hideous "holiday music" played in stores induces nausea and is also ideal for any pagans on your list who are celebrating the winter solstice.
