In an effort to encourage orchestral works by young composers, the Iceland Symphony now organizes its third composers' workshop under the guidance of its artist-in-residence, Daníel Bjarnason.

Composers Gísli Magnússon and Veronique Vaka Jacques were selected by a five-member committee made up of composers and members of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. They began working with the orchestra last autumn, and have thus developed their skills in writing for symphony orchestra. Both works will be premiered at this concert.
