About the 2015 concert series
The aim of this series, Klassík í Vatnsmýrinni, is to give the audience a chance to hear the very best of Icelandic and foreign artists perform classical music.
2015 marks 100 years anniversary of the Voting Rights for Women so the female singer is prominent in this seventh year‘s programming. We also welcome distinguised guests from Finland. In September the Swedish soprano Gitta-Maria Sjöberg gives a lieder recital with her Danish pianist Irene Hasager.The Icelandic pianist Jón Sigurðsson celebrates the composer Alexander Scriabin. The final concert takes place in November with the music of Francis Poulenc, the opera The Human Voice, performed by soprano Auður Gunnarsdóttir and pianist Helga Bryndís Magnúsdóttir.
