Dúplum Dúó – Björk Níelsdóttir and Þóra Margrét Sveinsdóttir

Summer Series - Welcome Home

This event has passed

Singer Björk Níelsdóttir and violist Þóra Margrét Sveinsdóttir join forces after having toured with the likes of Björk, Sigurrós, Florence and the Machine and Stargaze. They met during their studies at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and are currently working on their first CD.

Here you will hear two unlikely instruments join forces in the most intimate of settings. The program consists of brand new new music, composed especially for Dúplum Dúó,  based on poetry by e.g. Maya Angelou, Daniil Kharms and Shakespeare.
