|This very contemplative and beautiful CD is filled with the most relaxing and softly calming music from all times, played with a lyrical bow on the Cello by maestro Åke Olofsson, former solocellist of the Swedish Radio Symphonics, and the Organist of the Seglora Church in Sweden´s most visited open-air museum Skansen, Karin Strid.
Åke Olofsson, Cello, has played as a soloist with conductors like Celebidache, Maazel, Barbirolli and others, and together with David Ojstrach he recorded Brahms´ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello.

As one of the foremost cellists in his generation he is most recognized as Bach interpreter.
