Ice Flowers Melting CD
Ice Flowers Melting

Ice Flowers Melting is the only album featuring the Finnish folk harp--or folk zither. The instrument is the national instrument of Finland, and there are songs and sagas about and for this instrument. The Kantele has a sound like that of the wire strung Celtic harp, clear, bell like and ringing. A real listening joy.

The simplicity of this music is precarious, crystal-like, resonant. On the kantele, the folk zither of Finland, Sylvan Grey performs her original works, composed to give full play to the unique possibilities of this exquisite instrument. Elements of Western and Eastern classical tradition are brought together in fluid, distinctive music as thin and clear as high mountain air.

Available for the first time on CD, this recording represents the true sound of the kantele with minimal electronic processing. The resonance and richness are that of the instrument rather than that of the studio

This is an album we carried a decade ago, and we're delighted to be able to offer it again.
