Unique church concert and tribute to an acclaimed Icelandic (film)composer. A complete live performance of ‘Virðulegu Forsetar’, Jóhann Jóhannsson’s second album, which was released in 2004 as the successor to his debut ‘Englabörn’. ‘Virðulegu Forsetar’ means as much as ‘eminent presidents’ and also served at the time as soundtrack for an expo about … euh … presidents. ‘Virðulegu Forsetar’ is a stately, minimalistic composition in four parts with a duration of about 60 minutes. The instrumentation consists of 11 brass players, percussion, organ and piano.

Kommentar: Jóhann Jóhannsson composed many very exceptional, impressive and stunningly beautiful solo albums such as Englabörn (2002), A User’s Manual (2006) Fordlandia (2008) and Orphée (2016). In my opinion, Virðulegu Forsetar (2004) was his master piece!
