HJÖRTUR PÁLL EGGERTSSON cello BJARNI FRIMANN BJARNASON piano

BEETHOVEN Sonata in G minor Op.5 No.2

JÓN NORDAL 'Pictures on a Panel Wall'

RACHMANINOV Sonata in G minor for Cello and Piano Op.19

We first heard Hjörtur as the soloist in the Cello Concerto No. 1 by Shostakovich at a concert given by the Reykjavik College of Music Symphony Orchestra in the stunning Harpa concert hall in Reykjavik in March 2017. We invited him to come to South Creake the very next day.

He brings with him pianist, Bjarni Frimann Bjarnason, who studied at the Iceland Academy of Arts and then moved to Berlin to study conducting at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler. He made his début at the Icelandic Opera in 2017 when he conducted Tosca with the British soprano Claire Rutter in the title role.

Two great works from the cello and piano repertoire frame a relatively recent one by Jón Nordal, one of the leading cultural figures in Iceland. He is well known for his Viola Concerto, the Concerto for Orchestra and Choralis, which was commissioned by Rostropovich for the Scandinavia Today Exhibition held in Washington DC in 1982.
