Frum- Festival for new music - Kjarvalsstaðir, Sunday 10 June 8 p.m.

Kristjana Helgadóttir and Ingólfur Vilhjálmsson


Frum- is a festival for contemporary music taking place in Reykjavik/Iceland in June every year. The goal of the festival is to introduce masterpieces of contemporary music literature - pieces that have already established themselves within music history but nevertheless are seldomly heard in the concert halls of Reykjavík. Additionally selected pieces by young composers from all over the world expand the festival's program.  frum- offers a great opportunity to get an international perspective on traditions and trends of contemporary music developments. The festival is organized in cooperation with The Reykjavik Art Museum. The museum's exhibitions allow the audience to experience the music in a creative and stimulating environment.
