August 3rd. Last weekend 2018 at Summer Concerts Skálholt is coming up. We keep our profile. New music and old and this weekend with focus on women's contribution to western music. The prize winner ensemble Nordic Affect plays two programmes. A baroque programme: Vivaldi's students, MadameX, and other mysterious women... On Sunday the four faboulous players perform music by four prominent female composers. Veronique Vaka, and Luong Hue Trinh as well as our composers in residence, Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir and Bára Gísladóttir. Also this weekend Sólveig Thoroddsen, harp and Sergio Coto Blano, lute will perform renaissance music.
