Jón Leifs
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Jón Leifs (May 1, 1899 – July 30, 1968), was an Icelandic composer. Jón was born in Sólheimar. He left Iceland in 1916 to study in Germany at the Leipzig Conservatory. He graduated in 1921 having studied piano, and then devoted his time to conducting and composing. He became successful as a conductor, and also as a writer. He married Jewish pianist Annie Riethof . They had two daughters, Snót and Líf, and lived in Wernigerode and subsequently in Baden-Baden . His family was harassed by the Nazis. In 1944 he moved to Sweden , and in 1945 he moved back to Iceland. After returning to Iceland he eventually divorced his wife. One of his daughters, Líf, drowned in a swimming accident off the coast of Sweden, and he wrote his string quartet Vita et Mors in her memory. Most of his works are about Icelandic natural phenomena. In the piece Hekla he depicts the eruption of the volcano Hekla which he witnessed. Dettifoss (Op. 57) was inspired by the Dettifoss waterfall, the most powerful in Europe. In the

Viking Age Music
Dear Viking Answer Lady:
I've attended many a song-fire and bardic circle, and I love to sing and I play a number of medieval instruments but all the pieces I know are either medieval songs, or else post-medieval folk music. The problem is, I have a Viking persona, and I'd like to be able to develop pieces for performance much more in line with my persona. What kind of music and instruments did the Vikings have? Where can I get sheet music or recordings of Viking Age music and songs?
(signed) Skald with Nothing to Sing
Gentle Reader:
It has been asserted with some justice that music and song are two of the characteristics that are found among every human culture. The Vikings certainly did have music, and musical instruments. However, the Viking Age occurred before the technology of writing on vellum or paper arrived in Scandinavia. While a few accounts exist from outside observers contemporary with the Vikings, and a number of orally-transmitted materials were recorded by Scandinavians harking back to the days of their Viking ancestors, these are few indeed. Further, the technology of recording music was not even well-known among the Christian peoples of more southerly lands during the early Middle Ages, so recorded scores are extremely rare. Still, archaeological finds, the literary accounts, and musical survivals in remote areas give good clues to the music of the Vikings.

SHORT BIO "Elegy" Op. 53, written as a tribute to his mother who had died in 1960, "There are moments of both clear brightness and dim shadows...Soft string passages stretch out and draw together, lift themselves up and then bow down in humility to the highest power. From the beginning the conclusion is clear: EACH PERSON IS ALONE, ALL ALONE, WITH HIS GOD" (Hilmar Oddsson) "Geysir" Op. 51 "Three Images" Op. 44, "Symphony Number 1, Saga Symphony" (literally, "Saga Heroes")

Inga and Gurry is an Icelandic duo (voice and piano) that has been performing since 2002.
Inga and Gurrys performances combine humor and musicality, performing a vast repertory ranging from classical recital repertory to theatrical music, including French, German and American cabaret songs. A rarity that is not often heard in recitals, is the Duo's performance of Icelandic songs, describing the country's natural beauty and uniqueness both in old folksongs as well as in songs by Icelandic composers, often colored with poetry by the Icelandic Nobel price holder Halldor Laxness. Engagements recent seasons include:
  • Brunch with Bach at the Detroit Institute of Arts Fine Arts Friday at the Detroit Institute of Arts Recitals at the Concert Hall in the Academy of Music in Vancouver National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa Eckhardt-Grammatt Hall in Winnipeg Knox Presbyterian Church in Calgary Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto Sheldon Performing Arts Theater in Minneapolis well as various smaller performances at Gimli, Manitoba; Wynyard, Saskatchewan; Guelph, Ontario; Edmonton in Alberta, Husavik and Hofn in Iceland.
