About

This double CD contains four works for violin and orchestra. Two were by naturalized Icelanders, born in Austria, who were instrumental in building the musical life in Iceland following World War 2. The other two are amongst the most famous British violin concertos of the 20th century, and both were first performed in Iceland by Gudný Gudmundsdóttir and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra.
