COMPOSER IN RESIDENCE 2022

HRÓÐMAR INGI SIGURBJÖRNSSON

We are thrilled to announce Hróðmar Ingi Sigurbjörnsson as the festival's composer in residence. It is a great honour to welcome him back to the festival as he was one of the composers in residence in 2000.

Hróðmar has been a powerful figure in the Icelandic music scene for the past few decades. This he has accomplished with his compositions as well as contributions to music education. Hróðmar graduated in 1984 from The Reykjavík College of Music under the guidance of composers Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson and Atli Heimir Sveinsson. He then continued his studies at the Utrecht Conservatory with composer Joep Straesser, where he graduated in 1988. Since then, he has been an active composer and teacher in Composition and Music Theory. He holds a current position as Associate Professor and Programme Director in Composition and Music Theory at Iceland University of the Arts.

This year, old and new works by Hróðmar will connect the festival together as numerous performers will perform his music.
