”It’s this interplay between the three that is so enchanting. It’s modern in its setting and arrangements yet solidly based on the tradition…A splendid debut recording!”  - Driftwood Magazine

“These pieces are well worth discovering…The arrangements are exquisite, making full use of the different tones of the instruments and setting them against each other, melodically and rhythmically…and there’s huge joy in the music-making here, with a real sense of playfulness.” - fRoots

This is the first album released by Impuls Trio. The repertoire on this album is a mixture of unique tunes from old Danish original manuscript music books, tunes from the common Danish traditional country dance repertoire and some of our own compositions. The tunes are traditional dance tunes: polkas, waltzes, schottishes, reels, jigs, ’polish’ dances and a hopsa.
