Notes & Reviews:

Blockbird features works written for recorder in Norway, from 1969 up to the present day. The recorder experienced a renaissance in the 1960s, when composers once again began to show an interest in the instrument. A number of them - such as Olav Anton Thommessen in the title track "Blockbird" - used associations with birds, a common theme on this recording. The recorder is heard both unaccompanied and, as in the three chamber music works, with piano, guitar, and organ. Since receiving Concerts Norway's prestigious recording grant "Intro-klassisk," Caroline Eidsten Dahl has distinguished herself both as soloist and chamber musician. This is her debut as a recording artist.
