Conceived by the baroque violinist Bjarte Eike, this programme is his personal ‘image of melancholy’ - "for me, melancholy is not only synonymous with sadness and despair, it is a state also harbouring reflection, meditation and relief".

This music does not belong to any particular style, but forms a musical matrimony between Nordic folk, the rich sounds of the Elizabethan consort and a modern approach to music-making (soundscapes by Jon Blake).
