CD A0157: Dasson Ur Galon by Tristan Le Govic

Dasson Ur Galon
Tristan Le Govic

Cover: Dasson Ur Galon by Tristan Le GovicDasson Ur Galon - A Heart's Echo. "The tunes, traditional and new, to be found on this first CD from harper, Tristan Le Govic, display clearly his artistic credentials as a leading exponent in composition and performance.  His is a nimble and subtle technique, playing in a variety of tempos and variations. The dance tunes balance intimacy with vivacity.  His rendition of O' Carolan 's Eleanor Plunkett recaptures the pathos through contrasting slow playing with detached notes. The March of the King of Laois displays a typical treatment, which provides a striking comparison with the vivacious and triumphal version by The Chieftains". Armor Magazine, November 2006 (Translated from French)
