Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra Christmas Concert

Classical Sundays

The annual Christmas concert of the Reykjavik Chamber Orchestra is a festive event. Beautiful Italian baroque music will bring you the peaceful spirit of christmas. Our soloists this year are two young women, Steiney Sigurðardóttir who has recently become assistant principal cellist of the Iceland Symphony and violinist Laufey Jensdóttir who is also in the Iceland Symphony and a member of the Reykjavik Chamber Orchestra. You are invited to gorgeous palaces in Florence, Napoli and Venice and the varied program offers a bright and vivid cello concerto by Vivaldi, a beautifully ornamented violin concerto by Pergolesi, works by Locatelli, Marcello, Veracini and the introvert but world famous trio sonata by Domenico Gallo, a piece used by Stravinsky in his ballet Pulcinella.
