Daphne 1027




For this CD Nils-Erik Sparf and David Härenstam, a duo with several radio and TV performances to their credit, have put together a medley of music for violin and guitar. The intimacy of this form of chamber music and its richness of texture are essential to the works chosen, several of which, including the title track, “Spheres”, were expressly written for the duo. This Swedish music thoroughly deserves to be broadcast worldwide. Sparf is perhaps best known as an interpreter of Baroque music, but here he gives free rein to his versatility and mastery in music of a more contemporary kind. Härenstam’s beautiful and virtuoso guitar playing is also worthy of an international audience. He belongs to the new generation of brilliant guitarists in Sweden who are also actively contributing towards a broadening of the instrument’s repertoire.
