Inspired improvisastions The experienced young duo Gunnar Halle (trumpet) and Espen Eriksen (piano) present familiar Christmas carols in reflective new settings on “Meditations on Christmas”. Sensitive ensemble-playing and lyrical calm runs like a golden thread throughout the disc. The strength and the message of these Christmas songs is so powerful that they shine no matter what sort of light is cast upon them. The music is incredibly beautiful, but challenging to the listener too in improvisations and new arrangements. The duo performed a long series of overwhelmingly well received concerts before they made the recording at Oslo’s legendary Rainbow Studio in May 2010.
