Title: Strings Attached: The Voice of Kannel
Label: Harmonia Mundi

Related to the harp but positioned horizontally by the player, the kannel possesses an uncommon timbre, at times reminiscent of the harpsichord. Anna-Liisa Eller offers us a chance to discover this treasured symbol of Estonia's musical heritage courtesy of her own transcriptions of well-loved pieces by Couperin, Byrd, Dowland, and Rameau. This magical journey across centuries and musical styles, is rounded off by original improvisations and a contemporary work by the young Estonian composer Helena Tulve, in which the instrumen's myriad colors can shine through in all their rare variety.
