Review of album Oslo(ve)

Alison Young, Harp Column Magazine (US) march/april 2018 

https://www.harpcolumn.com/oslove/

"I en slik samtidssetting er det noe komisk at stykket som skilte seg mest ut i denne første avdelingen var Uno Alexander Vesjes harpekonsert Bragi’s Harp. Vesje selv er en virtuos på harpen. Han lener seg tungt på den klassiske konsertformen og er ikke redd for å spille på de «publikumsvennlige» strengene – her er tonale arpeggioer, enkle, gjentatte melodier, og en skamløs bruk av folketoneelementer som åpne kvinter i akkompagnementet og forhøyede kvarter i melodiene. Slik demonstrerer Vesje festivalens motto: Statements and Rituals. Konsertformen og innholdet er ritualet, og å insistere på å videreføre den i en så ren form i dagens fragmenterte samtid er et kraftig statement."

"A stunningly beautiful, eye-opening and deeply touching album (...)

what every harpist wants to do with their strings.

The effects are stunning, the resolution is a breath of fresh air."

"The cooperation between her and the harpist, who played some of his own compositions, was excellent.

Vesje followed her every move with hawk eyes and she responded to his music with great softness."
