Notes & Reviews:

Ashilld Henriksen was born in Porsanger in the far north of Norway, but grew up in Tjome in the Oslo Fjord. Norway has more wind bands per capita than any other country in the world, so it was natural that she should join the school's music group during childhood. Later studies were with Peter Damm in Dresden. She moved to Sweden in 1979, when she became principal horn player of the Helsingborg Symphony. In 1994 she won third prize in the Scandinavian Horn Competition in Mikkeli, Finland. Alongside her orchestral work, Ashilld has a passionate involvement with chamber music, not least as member of the group Pollux. She has appeared as soloist with several Norwegian orchestras in Oslo and Bergen. As she writes, "The idea for this CD came from a conversation with my colleagues after a concert. For several of us, our 50th birthdays were approaching - one of life's milestones, where often dreams can be realized! Some may cycle around Europe or change jobs, others move to the countryside or move back to town. Besides, I had been in the same workplace for 25 yearsSuddenly I simply knew that I wanted to record a CD! After many hours of work, both with the horn, but also in front of the computer and on the telephone, my dream came true - and on my 50th birthday!"
