The first recordings for Art From the Start

Last week was full of amazing and intesive work with many fantastic people. First we had a very good concert at the Icelandic Ambassador's villa at Bygdøy in Oslo. On Thursday and Friday I and the duo  recorded three of my compositions, among them was one from the project Art From the Start!

Today I had the pleasure of having a concert at the Icelandic Embassy in Oslo, with music only by me. The fantastic musicians who performed it were Margrét Brynjarsdóttir, alto/mezzo, Vaiva Mažulytė, piano, and the Swedish duo, En Vokalist & En Cellist (Anna K. Larson, soprano, and Sanna Andersson, cello).

It was an true honour stowed upon us by the Icelandic Embassy that kindly hosted the concert at the Ambassador's villa in Bygdøy, Oslo.

Thank you again!

Opera Workshop

For three days now, my life has been full of opera and singing. During these three days I have had an opera workshop with my newest mini-opera "Team Player". With me I had the librettist Oda Fiskum, stage director Lisa Charlotte Baudouin Lie, the opera singers: Patrick Egersborg, Ivi Karnezi and Margrét Brynjarsdóttir, and the pianist Kira Whiting. Thank you all for three fantastic days and Dramatikenshus in Oslo for making this possible.
