Reykjavik Classics

Þessi viðburður er liðinn

Iceland´s award-winning concert hall Harpa proudly presents Reykjavik Classics in Eldborg summer 2017. This unique concert series is now in its second year and is indeed a welcome addition to the vibrant scene of arts and culture in the Capital. Reykjavik Classics features live classical music performed by artists of the highest caliber in “one of the ten best concert halls of the new millennium.” (Gramophone)

Reykjavik Classics begins on June 26 and runs until August 16 with two concerts every day, at 12:30 and 15:30. Each concert lasts for a total of 30 minutes without intermission. The program offers representative masterworks from the classical repertoire including Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Mendelssohn and the performing artists are leading soloists from the Iceland Symphony and the Icelandic Opera. Artistic director of Reykjavik Classics is pianist Nína Margrét Grímsdóttir.

“I attended a lovely concert of the piano and string version of Beethoven’s Op. 16 chamber work while visiting Reykjavík recently. Entering the visually arresting Harpa Arts Center with its remarkable glass exterior shell set the scene for a memorable event… Despite visiting during the summer months, when the orchestra season is over, it was a delight to find a classical concert of such quality with professionals from among the ranks of the Iceland Symphony. The performance was energetic and assured with many delights, especially in the lyrical slow movement. I recommend anyone who loves great music to add this to their list of satisfying things to do around Reykjavík, for the inspiration of the music and the architecture. It was a highlight of our visit to Iceland which left a very favorable impression of the country!” – Roderick Phipps-Kettlewell, Minnesota USA via TripAdvisor

“I thoroughly enjoyed a top notch 30 minutet lunchtime concert “Sound the Trumpets” in the Reykjavik Classics series. Great programme including well known classics by Bach and Handel as well as an Icelandic chant and an Icelandic folk song. Meeting the performers and the Artistic Director afterwards made it all the more special. Highly recommended!” – Carmelita, Bologna, Italy via TripAdvisor
