Egill Árni og Kristinn Örn - Classical Sundays
Last leaves and the poetâs love
A concert showcasing two great song cycles. Dichterliebe by Robert Schumann and 8 poems from âLast leaves by Richard Strauss(Op.10). It does not happen often that Richard Straussâ song cycles are performed as a whole. Op.10 is Straussâ first song cycle and it contains some of his most beautiful and well known songs, such as Zueignung, Allerseelen and Die Nacht, all composed to the poems of Hermann von Gilm. Egill and Kristinn have worked together for a long time on various projects, and now it is time for their first Lieder concert. Recently a new album of Icelandic Art songs, Reverie, was released where Egill and Kristinn perform 21 Icelandic songs both old and new.
