Ari Eldjárn and the Iceland Symphony: Stand up!

Þessi viðburður er liðinn

The Iceland Symphony’s collaboration with Ari Eldjárn last
season was truly a show-stopper. All three concerts in Eldborg Hall were sold
out, and tickets were in such demand that it was decided to stage an encore in
September 2018. Ari can be depended upon not to leave a straight face in the
house as he tells hilarious stories relating to the orchestra and introduces
popular symphonic works that many guests will recognise from other places than
the concert hall, including recent cinematic hits.

Among the selections on the programme are the Allegretto
from Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7,
recognised by many from the film The
King’s Speech
; the mountain king theme from Grieg’s Peer Gynt, used so effectively in The Social Network; and Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, which provided the perfect accompaniment to Apocalypse Now. This unusual concert
provides a unique pairing of humour and historical masterpieces – unforgettable
entertainment for the entire family.
