Notes & Reviews:

Duo Landon began in 2005 when the French-born violin maker Christophe Landon commissioned the two members of the Duo to record Bartok's 44 Duos. After this successful debut, the Duo began looking for repertoire from Icelandic composers. They found only three, and subsequently commissioned three other composers to write duos for them, all of which are included on this recording.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
I very much like the seven Elias Davidsson Bartok-inspired duets that open the program and find Porkell Sigurbj÷rnsson's settings of Icelandic folk songs beautiful and evocative. Each very short piece captures the spirit of its title, particularly 'Homeless in the Wilderness', 'Fall is Near', and 'Evening'; and the writing for two violins is wonderfully idiomatic. Sigurbj÷rnsson wrote these for his violin-playing granddaughters.
