Icelandic-German Concert

The Icelandic Caput Ensemble performs an Icelandic-German concert, where Edition·S – music¬sound¬art composer Steingrimur Rohloff is on the programme.

On Sunday March 17, 2013 the Nordic House in Reykjavík hosts an encounter between Icelandic and German culture with both culinary and musical experiences. The two-day conference is a kind of “meal between“, in a series of conferences discussing political, cultural, historical and industrial relations between the Nordic region and Germany.

Sunday afternoon at 3.15 pm the Caput Ensemble performs Steingrimur Rohloff’s The Sinus Experience (2007) at a concert with the German clarinet duo Zelinsky / Smeyers and singer Andrea Gylfadóttir. The concert also explores the relations between Iceland and Germany and both the composers and the performers have been chosen carefully to match this.

The Nordic House in Reykjavík is a cultural institution opened in 1968 and operated by the Nordic Council of Ministers. Its goal is to foster and support cultural connections between Iceland and the other Nordic countries. To this end the Nordic House organizes a diverse program of cultural events and exhibitions.
