Notes & Reviews:

Hallgrimsson, formerly a cellist with such respected ensembles as the English and Scottish Chamber Orchestras, turned full-time to composition in 1983. His music shows clearly the benefits that accrue to a sensitive composer who has decades of professional-level performance experience on his instrument. It is clear from the world premiere recordings of the works on this CD that Hallgrimsson is a composer who knows how to unveil the secrets of the strings.
