The Edda is one of the most famous poetry and the most important source of Norse mythology. Music inspired by the Edda describes the contemporary implementation of this huge collection of songs by POETA MAGICA. The ensemble, known throughout Europe for cross-border interpretations of Alter Musik, founded the combination of various styles of music to medieval-world-music. In this unique combination of musical inspiration and instrumental virtuosity, POETA MAGICA lets the gods, heroes and myths come to life in the mind of the CD EDDA Vol. The oldest ballads in Scandinavia, traditional folk melodies and original compositions sound as multifaceted as the Nordic landscape: traditional with Scandinavian instruments; classical with orchestra, modern with influences of jazz and new age. Recitations from the Edda in Old Icelandic and lyrics in Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish and English open up new perspectives on the divine world of the far north.
Musically, POETA MAGICA breaks new ground while remaining true to its particular style. The instrumental focus is the Nyckelharpa: So comes on this CD a complete Nyckelharpaorchester and for the first time the world's largest Nyckelharpa, developed by Holger spark large bass Nyckelharpa used, as well as a Nyckelharpa quarter-tone series. Well-known guest musicians from Scandinavia, such as Tone Hulbaekmo (Kalenda maya) from Norway, participated in this project.
