Synopsis

Album Description
This CD captures the spirit of the days surrounding Advent, Christmas and the New Year. The hammered dulcimer is the focus of this instrumental recording. Some of the selections are rooted in classical music while others are traditional or written by the Celtic harper Turlough O'Carolan. The Sonata in G by Melchior Chiesa was written in the 18th century for the hackbret (German hammered dulcimer) and keyboard and has rarely, if ever, been recorded in the United States. These are classical and Celtic solos, duets, and trios featuring Madeline's hammered dulcimer with fine guest artists: Seth Austen (guitar), Ralph Gordon (cello), Freyda Epstein (violin), Amy Rosser (harpsichord), Frances Lapp Averitt (flute), and Deborah Koth (piano). Heart's East is the winner of an Indie Award in string music from NAIRD.
