06.11.2002 – Horas and Raccons
Et engelsk band, der spiller traditionel musik fra Mellem- og Østeuropa.
Umiddelbart forventer man måske ikke det helt store, men her bliver enhver skepsis gjort til skamme. Musikken udføres med sjældent hørt virtuositet, nerve og overbevisning.
Det gode sammenspil udføres på violin, harmonika, kontrabas, mandolin/guitar og obo. Hertil et par bosniske søstres sang. Alt i alt mere end 70 minutters blændende musik; rumænske doinas, ungarske csardas og bulgarske horas. Et enkelt klezmernummer er det også blevet til. Musikken udføres snart i stoisk ro, snart i et hæsblæsende tempo. Især violinisten Christian Garrick imponerer med sin alsidige kunnen.
Nok en af de mest overbevisende plader med østeuropæisk musik – spillet af folk der “ikke lige er dér fra egnen”.
