SVEINBJORNSSON: Piano Trios / Violin Sonata


About this Recording

SVEINBJORNSSON: Piano Trios / Violin Sonata

The music of Iceland’s first composer, Sveinbjörn Sveinbjörnsson, is reflective of his personality, described by his contemporaries as vivacious and affectionate but temperamental at times. This recording celebrates the composer’s 160th anniversary by presenting an instrumental portrait of Sveinbjörnsson that should help to introduce his music to a wider audience.
