Reykjavík Festival: Contemporary Iceland: Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - 8:00pm
The LA Phil has presented a number of pieces by Daníel Bjarnason, who returns with an enthralling survey of new Icelandic music, ranging from Askell Masson‘s gripping solo drum song to new works for large ensembles.
In Nomine: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 8:00pm
In Nomines form a rich repertory of late Renaissance/early Baroque English instrumental music, all based on the same popular tune heard in the Taverner setting that opens the program. Fretwork’s album of Henry Purcell’s complete fantasias – which include two In Nomines – won a Gramophone Award in 2009.
