Our Classics has long been a staple in the nation's musical life, where state broadcaster RÚV teams up with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, giving the nation a chance to influence the program of this annual concert. This time, the concert is titled Powered by Emotions. The connection between music and human emotions is profound and multifaceted. Music delights us, lifts our spirits and even makes us laugh, but it also evokes melancholy, sorrow and empathy, stirs fear, anger, anxiety and even despair. This year's Our Classics is dedicated to the powerful spectrum of emotions that music holds, which each of us experience and interpret in our own way.

The program includes entertaining and captivating works that span the entire range of human emotions. Three-handkerchief arias, tension-filled notes of destiny, jubilant songs, trhilling overtures and popular works that unite generations in joy and sorrow, by composers such as Mozart, Stravinsky, Rossini, Copland, Beethoven and Bubbi Morthens. Bjarni Frímann Bjarnason conducts this musical feast, with a host of brilliant soloists performing with the Symphony Orchestra.
