About The Event

Norwegian composer, and accordionist Frode Haltli teams up with Swedish nyckelharpa virtuoso Emilia Amper for an evening of Scandinavian folk-inspired music. Haltli’s concert-length work The Border Woods is scored for accordion, two percussion and the nyckelharpa, or “keyed fiddle.”

Haltli works across folk, improvisation and contemporary classical genres, and creates a modern identity for his instrument. Blending the accordion with the richly resonant sounds of the Swedish nyckelharpa, The Border Woods picks up resonances and overtones from Nordic folk music and traces their connections with Indian and Arabic scales.

Frode Haltli, accordion; Emilia Amper, nyckelharpa; Eirik Raude, percussion
