Melodic harmonious beauty Josefine and Trine Opsahl – The Infinite Between Us

Melodic harmonious beauty Josefine and Trine Opsahl – THE INFINITE BETWEEN US:  I was first exposed to Trine’s beautiful Celtic harp mastery when I reviewed her “Add Colours To My Sunset Sky” album a couple years ago… on her newest release (1 January, 2021), Trine is joined by her daughter Josefine playing cello… to get an intimate and up-close insight into their melodic harmonious beauty together, please watch this interview trailer first…

…if you enjoyed watching and hearing Trine and Josefine, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Harpist Trine Opsahl’s YouTube channel… you’ll find many more performances and albums there; I’ve been subscribed for a long time now.

One of the most engaging and relaxing performances I’ve heard (yet) in 2021 is “When the Sun steps out from the Shadow”… something very unique about Trine’s compositional method is that there are many “changes” as a tune progresses… this piece starts off gently with harp and cello in a sort of “talk and respond” mode; by the 1:00 mark, they are conversing in a full-body mode… then, at about the 1:21 marker, they progress to something more light and airy – all this is to point out that you (and your ears) will be right “on edge” as you absorb what they are saying to you through their mutually soulful expressions – an AMAZING sonic experience that DJ’s (of all stripes) will be playing often!

It was one of the shorter performances (4:50) of the dozen delightful songs offered up that won my vote for personal favorite… “Eternity In A Song” demonstrates just how entwined this mother and daughter are through their love of music…

…if any performance merits an award, it is certainly this one… I predict the song will win multiple awards, in fact!

I give Trine and Josefine a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this deeply enjoyable album.  Get more information at the Trine Opsahl website.           Rotcod Zzaj
