Jon Leifs - Composer
Something of a cult figure, Jon Leifs is especially known for spectacular orchestral works often inspired by the natural phenomena of his native Iceland such as volcanoes (Hekla) or waterfalls (Dettifoss) or the great Icelandic sagas (Saga Symphony, and the large-scale, unfinished Edda oratorio). But throughout a turbulent life, Leifs also composed a number of solo songs all of which are gathered here. These 32 songs (including several folk song arrangeĀ­ments) often give unusually clear insights into the comĀ­poser: more than Leifs work in any other genre, his song writing was often inspired by deeply personal events in his life, and consequently span a huge range of emotion and expression, from delicate lullabies to the most forceful of epic songs. This is brought out by Finnur Bjarnason and Orn Magnusson, both stalwart champions of the music by their compatriot in concert and on disc.
