Unbroken Dreams

Unbroken Dreams

Josefine and Trine Opsahl

Heart to Heart Records

Mother and daughter Trine (Celtic harp) and Josefine Opsahl (cello) join forces to create a startlingly beautiful album with Unbroken Dreams. This is the duo’s second collaboration (the first was 2008’s Leaving My Silent Empty House), and it’s even more emotionally rich and soul stirring than its predecessor. Both mother and daughter are consummate musicians, in full command of every nuance and note from their respective instruments. This is not your run-of-the-mill relaxation harp album, though. At times, the music takes turns into shadowy, introspective territory, a balancing act between classical influence and contemporary impressionism. Drink long and often of this album’s 13 selections, savoring every drop.
