SinfoniaNord’s 25th Anniversary Concert
|March 24, 2019
Two great masterpieces and a premiere of a Norwegian innovation on the 25th anniversary concert of the North Iceland Symphony Orchestra.
A new piece will be performed, composed by one of Akureyri’s main composers, Atli Örvarsson. The piece was specifically created for the anniversary. Then, the great mysterious Scheherazade will be performed by Rimsky-Korsakov by the SN’s great festival orchestra. The piece is truly magical and based on the stories from One Thousand and One Nights.
Conductor Guðmundur Óli Gunnarsson and his daughter, Hrafnhildur Marta Guðmundsdóttir cellist, will perform together with the orchestra, one of the most beautiful cello concert ever created; cello concert no. 2 by Dvorák.
Conductor Guðmundur Óli Gunnarsson performed an important job for the North for 23 years as the principal conductor of the The North Iceland Symphony Orchestra and his daughter, Hrafnhildur Marta Guðmundsdóttir, cellist, took her first steps at the Akureyri Music School and played with the orchestra and her father at numerous concerts. Now they visit Akureyri again, the place that had a great impact on their appreciation for art, and will do their part in making this festive time memorable in the minds of the audience.
