Full: Nordic

Programmed by Sarah Cahill

The five Icelandic women known as Nordic Affect perform new music on period instruments, and are the only ensemble who has worked with both the English Concert and Björk. Their program includes work by Anna Thorvaldsdottir and other Icelandic composers. The San Francisco Chronicle praises their "lush but vividly pointed sonic textures."
