New Music Festival Jan 27 – Feb 2 Iceland Comes to Winnipeg Celebrating Winnipeg’s Special Connection with the Icelandic Community The Winnipeg New Music Festival’s unique relationship with Iceland – its innovative composers and their uniquely evocative music – has evolved over a number of seasons. This year is the 100th anniversary of an important milestone in Icelandic history: the Danish Icelandic Act, a pivotal point in Iceland’s history and journey to independence. In celebration of that event, the WNMF 2018 presents multiple world premieres by Icelandic composers including a major new work for orchestra and choir by Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson on January 31. Also featured is a premiere choral work by two-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner for Best Score Jóhann Jóhannsson (Jan 29), and a Canadian premiere of music by Björk (Jan 27). The world premiere live music score and film of “Dawson City: Frozen Time” by film director Bill Morrison (The Miners Hymns with Johann Johannsson) and Sigur Ros producer, collaborator, and composer Alex Somers (of Jonsi and Alex, and Riceboy Sleeps) (Feb. 3). In addition, Bjork’s pianist and collaborator Jonas Sen will be performing his own music (Jan. 25) as well as performing with Philip Glass (Jan. 28), and there will be the sneak preview of a new film by Guy Maddin (Jan. 25).
