About

It sounds like being in a dreamland when Icelandic tenor Benedikt Kristjánsson sings folksongs from his homeland. For his first GENUIN album, the first-prize winner of the Greifswald International Singing Competition and Audience Award winner of the Leipzig Bach Competition has teamed up with the sought-after accompanist Alexander Schmalcz. Schmalcz congenially tunes into Kristjánsson's nebulous landscapes when the singer juxtaposes the old melodies, sung a cappella, with Schubert's Romanticism. A different language, a different time – but the same feelings and human destinies! Full of deep earnestness, a fine sense of sound and artistic unanimity: a moving duo!
