Favourite Icelandic songs and popular opera arias with renowned Icelandic mezzo-soprano Hanna Dóra Sturludóttir, accompanied by pianist Snorri Sigfús Birgisson delighted of all who attended. Hanna’s ability through expression and voice enabled all to understand the messages and the stories of the songs. Snorri’s is a most accomplished pianist and we found out a composer as well.
