show reviews:

From the first to the last minute, the show unfolds in space thanks to projections of digital images whose huge tentacles snap the viewer to release it at the end of the trip - even if trip would be more appropriate as a term .
The paintings with a devastating aesthetic follow one another, illustrating a set-list without concession, creating an organic and totally disinterested sound environment of the tubes of the diva. And when we spot one or the other - Venus As A Boy, Hidden Place, Isobel, Pagan Poetry - they are so deconstructed and reprogrammed that we recognize them (for some) hardly. To accompany the shaman in this world of perfection, a set of flutes, a harpist, a percussionist (the awesome Manu Delago), but also the creator Iris von Herpen and the artistic director of the house Balmain, Olivier Rousteing who sign the costumes that one can not worthily describe costumes but pure folly.

i am so incredibly grateful that the hamrahlíð choir and it's original conductor þorgerður ingólfsdóttir came on tour with me . i was myself in this choir when i was 16 and i think every single icelandic musician you have ever heard of was brought up and musically baptised by this miraculous woman . she is a legend in iceland and has guarded optimism and the light in the tumultuous times that teenagedom is . she has also encouraged and commissioned dozens of choir music from all of icelands most prominant composers for half a century or so . 

i am absolutely beyond honoured 


love and respect

About the Hamrahlid choir
THE HAMRAHLÍÐ CHOIR has been at the forefront of Icelandic musical life for four
decades. Founded in 1967 by its present conductor, Þorgerður Ingólfsdóttir, it was among
the first college choirs in Iceland, and has maintained its leading position ever since. The
choir, made up of students at Hamrahlíð College in Reykjavík, is an educational institution
in its own right. More than 2,000 Icelandic teenagers have come into contact with
classical music through the Hamrahlíð choral experience. Many of these have had no prior
musical training, but through diligent practice they have gone on to participate in musicmaking of the highest quality, from new Icelandic compositions to the choral masterworks of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.

The Hamrahlíð Choir has been a breeding ground for many of Iceland’s leading singers,
instrumentalists, and composers. Among the many musicians who are former members
of the choir are singer/songwriter Björk Guðmundsdóttir, composer Haukur Tómasson
(Nordic Council Music Prize 2004) and bass Kristinn Sigmundsson. In 1982, a choir
made up of former students at Hamrahlíð College was founded and immediately established itself as one of Iceland’s leading choral ensembles.

Although the Hamrahlíð Choir is primarily devoted to musical education, it has from the
very beginning been dedicated to giving performances of the highest quality. The choir
sings with a pure, flexible, well-blended sound, and it performs with exuberance and a
youthful sense of discovery. Critics throughout the world have praised its accurate intonation, clear diction, and the high level of enthusiasm and commitment that are among the hallmarks of the choir’s music-making.

Throughout its history, the choir has collaborated closely with Icelandic composers. Over
90 works have been composed especially for the choir, including works by virtually all of
Iceland’s leading composers. Apart from its close association with native composers, the
choir has collaborated with foreign artists such as Arvo Pärt, John Cage, and Vagn Holmboe in the first Icelandic performances of their works. Arvo Pärt was so impressed with the choir’s performance of his Te Deum in 1998 that he composed a choral work dedicated to Þorgerður Ingólfsdóttir, …which was the son of…, which was premièred in 2000.

With its dedication, passion, and spirit, the Hamrahlíð Choir has touched audiences
around the world. The Choir has travelled to 23 countries and has performed at many
of the world’s leading choral festivals to great acclaim, introducing audiences around the
world to the rich legacy of Icelandic choral music. The choir has participated in festivals
in Europe, North America, and Asia, and collaborated with renowned conductors
such as Tõnu Kaljuste, Osmo Vänskä, Lukas Foss, Laszlo Heltay, Robert King, Timothy Brown, Gustav Sjökvist, Willi Gohl, Hansruedi Willisegger, Johan Dujick, Petri Sakari,
and Thomas Adés. The choir has been a member of the European Federation of Young
Choirs since 1978, and is one of the founding members of the International Federation
for Choral Music. -
