Further Information

Safnað er fyrir útgáfu geisladisks með sönglögum Karls Ottós Runólfssonar, í glænýjum útsetningum Hjartar Ingva Jóhannssonar. Hildigunnur Einarsdóttir mezzósópran og Jón Svavar Jósefsson baritón túlka lögin ásamt kammerhópnum KÚBUS. Markmiðið með útgáfunni er að gefa sönglögum Karls Ottós nýtt líf, en þau verða teljast með mestu gersemum íslenskrar tónlistarsögu.

Kammerhópurinn KÚBUS fékk Hjört Ingva Jóhannsson píanóleikara, tónskáld og meðlim í hljómsveitinni Hjaltalín til að útsetja sönglög eftir Karl Ottós Runólfsson. Lög Karls Ottós eru samin í einstökum og persónulegum stíl og búa yfir sannri og djúpri rómantík þar sem dramað fer alla leið. Mörg laganna eru þekkt og dáð en hópurinn lagðist yfir allt höfundarverk Karls og gróf einnig upp óþekkta og gleymda gimsteina. Sönglög Karls Ottós öðlast nýtt líf í nýjum útsetningum Hjartar Ingva sem draga fram sérstætt og djarft tónmál tónskáldsins og einstaka tilfinningu hans fyrir kontrapunkti. Ljóðin, sem tilheyra nokkrum öndvegisskáldum Íslendinga, eru ýmist myrk, kímin eða viðkvæmnisleg og mynda í meðförum hópsins eina óslitna heild frá upphafi til enda.

Um KÚBUS:

KÚBUS er breytilegur að stærð og sækist eftir samstarfi við listafólk með hugmyndir og kunnáttu sem rata ekki reglulega á svið á klassískum tónleikum. Hópurinn hefur það að markmiði að ná til nýrra áheyrenda, einkum ungs fólks og fólks sem hefur áhuga á listum en sækir alla jafna ekki klassíska tónleika.
KÚBUS flytur tónlist frá ýmsum tímabilum tónlistarsögunnar, starfar með listamönnum úr öðrum geirum og gerir tilraunir með tónleikaformið.
Fastir meðlimir hópsins eru Grímur Helgason, klarinett, Guðrún Dalía Salómonsdóttir, píanó, Ingrid Karlsdóttir, fiðla, Melkorka Ólafsdóttir, flauta, og Júlía Mogensen, selló en hópurinn er breytilegur að stærð. Í þessu verkefni bætist við Þórarinn Már Baldursson, víóla, ásamt söngvurunum Jóni Svavari Jósefssyni, barítón og Hildigunni Einarsdóttur, mezzósópran.

Um tónskáldið:

Karl Ottós Runólfsson, fæddur í Reykjavík árið 1900, var einn af frumkvöðlum íslenskrar tónlistarsögu. Hann nam prentiðn og vann sem prentari til 25 ára aldurs en þá venti hann sínu kvæði í kross og fór í tónlistarnám. Hann starfaði við tónlist allar götur síðan sem hljóðfæraleikari, kennari, hljómsveitarstjóri og mjög afkastamikið tónskáld. Hann er líklega þekktastur fyrir sönglög sín, mörg hver afar ástsæl eins og Í fjarlægð og Nirfillinn.

About the project:

We are raising funds for a CD release with some of Icelands most spectacular songs. The songs are written by Karl Ottós Runólfsson and arranged by Hjaltalín´s piano genius Hjörtur Ingvi Jóhannsson. Hildigunnur Einarsdóttir, mezzo soprano, and Jón Svavar Jósefson, baritone, sing the songs with the KÚBUS chamber group. The aim of this CD release is to bring new life to the songs of Karl Ottós, which are among the most valuable pieces of music in Icelandic music history.

The KÚBUS chamber group asked Hjörtur Ingvi Jóhannsson, pianist, composer and member of renowned band Hjaltalín, to arrange some well chosen songs by Karl Ottós Runólfsson. The songs have a very unique and individual style with deep romantic touch, humour and drama. Many of the songs are well known but the group went through all his many songs and dug up some precious ones that no one seems to know yet or have been forgotten.The songs come alive with Hjörtur Ingvi´s arrangements, which bring forth the very special and courageous style of the composer and his unique contrapunctual feeling. The poems belong to some of Icelands most famous poets and are brimming with darkness, tenderness and humour. The songs of the CD form a continuous musical story from beginning to end.

About KÚBUS:
The size of KÚBUS changes with every project. The group seeks collaboration with artists from different fields and with talents that often are not experienced in classical concerts.The group aims to reach new audiences, young people and people who are interested in the arts but normally would not go to classical concerts. KÚBUS performs music from different periods and of different kinds and likes experimenting with the traditional concert form.
These are the core members of KÚBUS: Grímur Helgason, clarinet, Guðrún Dalía Salómonsdóttir, piano, Ingrid Karlsdóttir, violin, Júlía Mogensen, cello and Melkorka Ólafsdóttir, flute. On the CD “Gekk ég aleinn” viola player Þórarinn Már Baldursson and singers Jón Svavar Jósefsson and Hildigunnur Einarsdóttir join the group.

About the composer:

Karl Ottós Runólfsson was born in Reykjavík in 1900. He was a pioneer in Icelandic music history. He studied printing and worked as such until he was 25, when he decided to study music. He worked as a musician ever since, as an instrumentalist, teacher, conductor and a very active composer. He is best known for his songs Í fjarlægð and Nirfillinn.
