Giovanna Pessi / Susanna Wallumrød: If Grief Could Wait
Giovanna Pessi: baroque harp

Jane Achtman: viola da gamba
Marco Ambrosini: nyckelharpa
Harpist Giovanna Pessi has previously been heard on ECM recordings with Christian Wallumrød and with Rolf Lislevand. On her first leader date for ECM she introduces a unique project of old and new songs in which 17th century pieces by Henry Purcell are interspersed with 20th century ballads of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake and 21st century songs of Susanna Wallumrød, all rendered timeless by the ‘early music’ instrumentation and Susanna’s pure, understated vocal style.
Recorded November 2010
