Since the mid-20th century, Iceland has developed its own scene for contemporary classical music.

Icelandic composers went to Europe or the USA to study closely with the musical avant-garde. Many of these returned home and developed a style that unites traditional and folk Icelandic music with contemporary western music. This is a very interesting release of a style of composition all too rarely heard. Susanne Kessel plays with a true understanding and commitment to this music.
