Album Review by Dyan Garris for New Age CD, Zone Music Reporter (ZMR), and “Spirit Seeker Magazine

What more perfect way to start the new year than with some infinitely relaxing harp and cello music by the mother/daughter duo, Denmark based Trine Opsahl and her daughter, cellist and composer, Josefine Opsahl.

Trine Opsahl is a Danish composer, harpist and therapeutic harp player who composes music for Celtic harp and cello. She has released three solo harp albums and two harp/cello duo albums with her daughter, cellist and composer, Josefine Opsahl.

A pioneer of harp therapy in Denmark, who has been featured on national television in Denmark and in magazine articles, Trine works as a therapeutic harp player in two hospices. She is a Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner (CTHP), trained and certified by the International Harp Therapy Program. She has played her soothing music for thousands of dying people and their relatives.

The music on “The Infinite Between Us” is peaceful and harmonious and is inspired by the Nordic-Celtic folk genre, which is ideally suited for therapeutic work and relaxation. I agree. The album is super-relaxing and beautiful to say the least.

“The Infinite Between Us” is 12 tracks and will be released on January 15, 2021. The album opens with “Lightly Dance into the Morning,” which is an ultra-soothing, flowing combination of very mellow cello, beautifully played by Josefine – an internationally recognized cellist and composer in her own right – plus scintillating harp, beautifully played by Trine as well. Soft and melodic, this lovely song pulls gently at the heartstrings.

“Picking Flowers” follows, and again is gracefully glorious with the sparkling harp/deep cello combination. “Close Your Eyes and Fall in Love” is a standout on the album. Melodic, sweet, and tender, this is one to easily fall in love with.

“The Nameless” is another favorite. The perfect partnership of sweet harp and the depth of the cello speaks to the soul here in ways nothing else can. While the entire album is relaxing and soul-soothing, I am also particularly fond of “Eternity in a Song.” Both instruments are exquisitely played, and this is a quite comforting and restful piece.

The album closes out with what I have to say is my ultimate favorite on this album, “Touched by an Angel.” The 6-1/2-minute conversation between the two instruments here can only be described as divine. Just gorgeous in every way. Ahhhh. Pure, infinite bliss.
