Notes & Reviews:
The members of the Skálholt String Quartet have for many years been part of a group of musicians who participate the summer festival at the cathedral of Skálholt in southwest Iceland. Their career as a string quartet started in 1996 when they gave concerts in Iceland and France. Since then, the Quartet has been invited to play at the Haydn Festival at the magnificent Esterhaza Palace in Western Hungary, where they performed Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ in the nearby church, where Haydn had been organist.Notes & Reviews:
