Iceland Symphony LIVE @ Harpa | 70th Anniversary Concert

"This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra's first concert. To celebrate the occasion, the Iceland Symphony holds a gala concert of major works by Sibelius and Mahler, coupled with a seldom-heard composition by Páll Ísolfsson, a pioneer in Icelandic musical life and one of the catalysts of the Orchestra's founding. Úr myndabók Jónasar Hallgrímssonar is an exceptionally accessible and entertaining piece composed as incidental music to a play based on the stories and poems of Icelandic poet Jónas Hallgrímsson, written by Halldór Laxness in 1945, on the centenary of the poet's death."
