20:45 – Agnar Már Magnússon – Mór (Release Concert)

Pianist Agnar Már Magnússon covers the Icelandic musician heritage, mixed with original music. The trio also includes Agnar, Valdimar Kolbeinn Sigurjónsson on Kontrabassa and Matthías Hemstock on drums. Then also plays with a quartet of horn players.

The trio has been collaborating intermittently since 2007, when Agnar released a CD, Láð which was well recieved and has been in demand ever since. There Agnar used national themes and rhymes to make new music. Here, this idea is continued and taken further. Icelandic folk songs and rhyme music are quite a treasure and from them new and progressive ideas can be derived.
