Notes & Reviews:

The chairman of the Society of Icelandic Composers, Kjartan Olafsson, says this of Sveinsson: "(He) is one of the leaders of Icelandic music in the last half-century. He has composed a number of works of varying sizes and types, many of which have become well known among Icelanders. He is equally skilled in most musical genres of the 20th century: jazz, contemporary music, electronic music, and theatre music. Sveinsson was a pioneer in blending music of different styles: jazz and contemporary, pop and electronic - which is now a recognized and popular trend among young musicians." Working in conjunction with guitarist Simon Ivarsson, he began creating works for solo guitar in the 1990s. This intriguing disc is the first fruit of all those labors.
