More Info:

Icelandic bass-baritone Andri Björn Róbertsson, and pianist Astrídur Alda Sigurdardóttir, perform Robert Schumann's Liederkreis op. 24 and Liederkreis op. 39, along with seven songs by the Icelandic composer Arni Thorsteinson. The two Liederkreise were composed during Schumann's Year of Song in 1840. More than sixty years later Thorsteinson began publishing his songs, and they were instantly regarded as national treasures by the Icelandic nation. The program invites the listener on a mysterious journey through nature, love, death and the unknown. Andri Björn Róbertsson studied at the Reykjavík Academy of Singing and Vocal Arts in his native Iceland, RAM and the National Opera Studio. In the 2020/21 season, Icelandic bass-baritone Andri Bjo"rn Ro'bertsson returns to Zurich Opera with the La Scintilla Orchestra for St John's Passion and revisits the roles of Witness 3 and Madman in George Benjamin's Lessons in Love and Violence at the Châtelet.
