Nordic Affect: From a 5 meter distance, Kjarvalsstaðir, Sunday 30 March 8 p.m.


Chamber ensemble Nordic Affect’s first concert in collaboration with Reykjavík Art Museum.

What did the horn that Bach and Handel wrote for look like? And how on earth do you play it? That and other fascinating facts about the history of the horn will be in the spotlight at chamber ensemble Nordic Affect's next concert. For this occasion, Nordic Affect will be joined by natural horn player Ella Vala Ármannsdóttir and perform some of the earliest chamber compositions written for the instrument, namely by Telemann, Graun and Bodinus. On the program are also works by Handel, Couperin and Philidor.

Nordic Affect is Reykjavík's Ensemble of 2014 and was nominated last year for the Nordic Council Music Prize. The ensemble was honored as Performer of the year in classical and contemporary music at last Iceland Music Award. The concert is a part of Nordic Affect’s winter concert series. This year's series sees them collaborate with various artists, ranging from musicians to composers.

The concert starts at 8 p.m., entrance is free.
