Haftor Medboe writes...
This album is the realisation of a dream for me. The music was written in Edinburgh in the autumn of 2004 as a development of ideas that had evolved through collaboration with fellow musicians and friends Signy Jakobsdottir, Sue McKenzie and Chris Greive. The four of us had already made one album together and I was keen to keep the winning formula for this one. As the melodies took shape it became clear that strings would work well with the material and I invited the Edinburgh Quartet to work with us on the recording. Having secured their services the challenge was then to fuse the Quartet’s classical discipline with our more improvisatory approaches in a meaningful way. The result is this album, which, I hope you agree, shows that genre definition doesn’t have to be a barrier and that melody and performance are what really count. I sincerely thank everybody involved for their efforts and understanding in bringing this music to life and hope that you enjoy the fruits of our labours.

Edinburgh Quartet
The Edinburgh Quartet was founded in 1959 and its current incarnation features the talents of Charles Mutter, Philip Burrin, Michael Beeston and Mark Bailey. The Quartet's repertoire is extensive, and the players have been closely associated with composers such as Tippett, Lutyens, Gal, Leighton, Wilson and James MacMillan. This commitment to Scottish music earned it the first PRS Award of the Scottish Society of Composers. With the London-based label, Meridian Records, the Edinburgh Quartet has released two CDs. Frequently featured in radio and TV broadcasts for the BBC and other stations, the Quartet is in demand as one of Scotland's most travelled musical exports.

You can almost visualise the Scottish scenery when listening to the disc. High mountains, lush moss-green valleys, open landscape, sea-spray, castles, the middle ages and a picturesque pub with ... yes, whisky.

(This) genre-blurring recording has a distinctly cinematic feel.

The Scotsman
Semi-impressionistic compositions make clever use of the interplay between the instruments.

The Herald
Sits happily in the same contemporary bag as the Bad Plus, Bill Frisell, and Esbjorn Svensson - all acts with whom Medboe's band has shared a stage.
