AllMusic Review by

The Nordic countries are -- by northern European standards -- remarkably rich in instrumental music. No fewer than 24 instruments, indigenous and naturalized, are presented in this admirable album, from the simple birchbark through flutes, fiddles, zithers, to accordions and guitar. A lavish illustrated booklet has an English translation.
