Hnúkaþeyr Wind Octet

Classical Sundays

In this concert the Hnúkaþeyr Wind Octet presents dazzling serenades from Austria and Bohemia. Hnúkaþeyr was formed in 2003 and is by tradition an ensemble of pairs of oboes, clarinets, horns and bassoons. Since its foundation the ensemble has, besides the classical repertoire, performed the Icelandic works composed for wind octet and commissioned new works.

The name Hnúkaþeyr refers to warm winds blowing from mountain tops.
