OUT NOW | Baroque Violinist Bjarte Eike’s New ‘Alehouse Sessions’ Album [LISTEN]

Rubicon Classic has announced the release of Norwegian Baroque violinist Bjarte Eike's imaginative and fun new disc: ‘The Alehouse Sessions’

Rubicon Classics has announced the release of Norwegian Baroque violinist Bjarte Eike's imaginative and fun new disc ‘The Alehouse Sessions’.

Recorded at a live concert at The Village Studios, in Copenhagen, with the Barokksolistene chamber ensemble, 'The Alehouse Sessions' has been described as an 'ever-evolving look into the music of the English 17th Century taverns, alehouses and pubs.'

“We are trying to recreate the feeling and ambience that these old alehouses used to have … it was just a huge party,” Bjarte has told The Violin Channel.

"From the feedback we are getting, a lot of people can relate ... the recording is a celebration of life, of showing that you are human,” he has said.

Track previews available now on Amazon and iTunes:
