Music and Art 14. - 17. March 2019
14. March – Welcome to Iceland
Upon arrival, a private driver will pick you up at the airport or you will take a bus straight to your hotel. In the afternoon you will go to see the Icelandic Symphony's performance "Two Symphonies and a Toccata" to Harpa concert Hall. Thorsteinn Hauksson's "Symphony Two", (2014) is in eight short movements that call to mind Japanese haiku, where fleeting thoughts and ideas are sketched out. Karólína Eiríksdóttir’s Toccata is older work, a powerful composition written for Orkester Norden in 1999. Anna-Maria Helsing’s is the conductor and her work with the Iceland Symphony has been highly acclaimed, as she knows Icelandic music well. For dinner we recommend that you try one of the fantastic restaurants located in Downtown Reykjavík. We can send you our recommendations and book a table for you.
