Gimbillinn mælti

The Lamb Spoke

Eldborg • August 12th • 13:00

Spirits and elves will roam around at Seigla’s noontime recital presented by the chamber group Stundarómur. The audiences will be led through an adventurous fairy tale of Icelandic music.

Stundarómur has arranged the music into a storyline which will tie together well known Icelandic music to some lesser known works, as well as world premieres of music by the Norwegian composer Daniel Haugen, written specifically for this occasion. Folktales are the main themes of the recital. These stories have been passed down by word of mouth for generations and are an integral part of Icelandic culture. They continue to inspire still to this day and are as relative as ever before. They remind us to coexist with nature and to be considerate in our ways of living.

We want to evoke these beautiful impressions with our audience and keep our rich musical tradition alive by bringing new light to the music and its connection to our culture.
