Hafliði Hallgrímsson: Metamorphoses

A chamber-music portrait of Hafliði Hallgrímsson, one of the leading figures in the recent flowering of Icelandic music. Enigmatic yet eloquent, inscrutable and self-contained, these exquisitely crafted, jewel-like works reflect the personality of the composer himself as well as his multifaceted literary and artistic interests and influences.

"Darragh Morgan and Robin Michael are superbly well-focused, Mary Dullea and viola-player Matthew Jones no less authoritative in Notes from a Diary"

"beautifully played"

"The music shimmers with ideas, its complexity at all times engages"
