"You don’t have to be terribly learned musically to realize that
something wonderful has transpired in Bach’s monumental set of
variations on a ground bass. Sigurjónsdóttir does the hard work
for you, so just sit back and enjoy!"
Coming to Light
for solo violin by
Alexander Liebermann, inspired by Sigurjón Ólafsson’s
A Girl. Written for Hlíf Sigurjónsdóttir in 2018.
The composer imagines how the Girl appears from inside of the stone by the
hands of the sculptor.
"Hlíf Sigurjónsdóttir plays with a great purity of
tone which she can tailor to the historical and individual style of the
pieces she performs. Her bowing is always flexible and accurate,
and her sense of pitch is precise. She is an excellent representative
of music in a very musically intense nation"
Music critic at the Washington Post, 2004
