Notes & Reviews:

Sigmund Groven and Iver Kleive have collaborated for more than 30 years and have built a repertoire consisting mainly of baroque pieces and Norwegian music. Despite their very different instruments and personalities, they have a fundamental musical rapport and understanding. Born and raised in Telemark, a region of Norway rich in folk-music, they have always had open minds and taken keen interest in various contemporary and popular musical styles and idioms. "In the right hands the harmonica can be an instrument of great beauty and sophistication. Sigmund Groven, like Tommy Reilly and Larry Adler before him, makes full use of the wide range and tonal expressions that the harmonica is capable of. His musicianship is superb, and he now unquestionably reigns supreme as one of the finest exponents of the harmonica in the world." - Sir George Martin
