Product Notes

In the past 15 years Harald Haugaard has established himself as one of Denmark's most acknowledged musicians. In his virtuoso fiddle playing he combines the playful ease with a rich and melancholy sound. His compositions are contemporary, original and in his overall artistic work deeply rooted in the rich Danish musical tradition. In the creation of music and performing Haugaard is an artist who is inquisitive and continuously searches for something new. He is undoubtedly rooted in traditional Danish music but brings with him a contemporary flair. The prestigious British music magazine fRoots has hailed him as one of the world's best folk fiddlers and the venerable classic string magazine The Strad regards Haugaard as a 'charismatic virtuoso' in their review of his concert at London's King's Place in April 2009 saying: 'Wonderfully clean playing and dynamic delivery'. During the summer 2010 Harald Haugaard has recorded a new album with 14 tracks. Most of the repertoire are brand new compositions from Haugaard as e.g. The title track 'Den Femte Søster' (The Fifth Sister). Great Nordic musicians such as Swedish guitarists Roger Tallroth and Mattias Peréz, Finnish bass player Tapani Varis, Danish cellist Kirstine Elise Pedersen and percussionist Sune Rahbek has contributed to the album. 'Den Femte Søster' includes also a new string quartet from Haugaard in three movements, the tune 'The King Arrives' as well as a new song written by Haugaard and Danish pop/rock legend Steffen Brandt (TV-2) sung by Helene Blum. The album has been recorded and co-produced by Torben Sminge and mixed in Copenhagen's outstanding Medley Studio.
