I expected the music to blow my mind. I expected you to be making amazing music, full of creativity, flowing with beauty, emotion and somehow calmness. You did it, and you’ve done it perfectly! I love this idea, this simpatico of creative minds and styles that compliment each other and raise each others’ level of excellence to a height rarely seen now. I hope to see the world discover that beauty in music is still here on Planet Earth and you two young men are sailing freely on the currents that flow between us and all that is possible! I salute you both! xxx TE “
‘A Wonderful CD…full of texture, depth and intimacy and many new ways of looking at the art of the guitar, violin duo. I love it! Thanks guys.’
“Deep musicality and enviable virtuosity to create music of stunning beauty. Guitarist Sönke Meinen´s partnership with violinist Bjarke Falgren is a pure delight”
“Bjarke Falgren and Sönke Meinen play with a lightness and delicacy that one rarely hears. This album is filled with refinement and nuance. Postcard to self is a beautiful recording”
“A combination of beautiful melodies and a great use of the violin and guitar that brings out all kind of different sounds. A pleasure to the ear!”
Adam Ben Ezra
“Successful illusion: The first notes sound like the string sound that you still would expect with such a duo. But then follows a kind of fingerstyle on the viola – or does the guitar get in already? And finally it does not matter, because you simply enjoy the music. Similar to David Grisman or Tony Rice, they generate a completely new, touching and virtuoso blend of elements: Folk, Latin, Jazz, Gypsy, Eastern European. However, the musical quantum leap is still a bit bigger here: Falgren and Meinen do not only open new doors in terms of genres – they also open up to new technical terrain on their instruments. Nevertheless, the album is far from being hard to digest.”
“In equal parts exciting, new and simply beautiful.”
