Our classics: Icelandic favourites Aug 31 20:00 Eldborg | Harpa Buy ticket

What is your favourite Icelandic composition? Is it Brennið þið, vitar by Páll Ísólfsson or Smávinir fagrir by Jón Nordal? Or perhaps Vökuró by Jórunn Viðar? The Our Classics concerts held by the ISO and the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV) in the past two years have been welcomed by concertgoers with open arms. This year, as we celebrate Iceland’s centenary as a sovereign nation, we are holding yet another, featuring Icelandic music from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The works that received the most votes in the election will be performed in Eldborg hall at a special gala concert, a pre-season taste of the upcoming year at the ISO.The conductor is Daníel Bjarnason, and Iceland’s leading singers and choirs will be on hand as needed.

Masters of ceremonies are Oddný Halla Magnúsdóttir and Guðni Tómasson, and the concert will be broadcast live on RÚV Television’s Channel 1.
