  • Description
  • Personnel
The duo that, according to All Music Guide "kick-started the Celtic-New Age fusion that exploded in popularity in the ‘90s", Scottish fiddle master Alasdair Fraiser and keyboardist Paul Machlis are a must for the traditional music connoisseur. Fraser’s expressive and technical range, allied to an intense, minutely calibrated empathy with his material, is nothing short of breathtaking, tempering extravagant gusto with hair-trigger control, tremendous muscular drive and lift with feather light delicacy of phrasing, lavishly unabashed emotionalism with filigree ornamentation. Machlis displays comparable finesse, lending extra weight, breadth and play of color to the music with a beautifully sure and imaginative touch.
