Notes & Reviews:

Icelandic-American pianist Kristin Jonina Taylor is widely known for her emphasis on performance of music by Nordic, especially Icelandic, composers. Here she presents Thorkell Sigurbjornsson’s music for piano. The recording offers the first published recordings of all but two of these works and presents the complete output of his serious piano compositions. The piano pieces embody a wide span of styles, techniques and emotions, all embraced with a great sense of humor, but they are undoubtedly the voice of Sigurbjornsson.
