The Concert DaNoIs presents Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic music by famous, well known, and less known composers; e.g. Grieg, Gade, Kuhlau, Beck, Heinze, Isolfsson. The Icelandic composer Tryggvi M. Baldvinsson has written the work “Icebreaker” for DaNoIs.
The three musicians in Trio DaNoIs are all graduates from the Grieg Academy in Bergen: Hornist Pernille Kaarslev, from Denmark, pianist Jónina Erna Arnardottir is Icelandic, and pianist Morten Fagerli is Norwegian. They all have long merits in giving concerts with Nordic music. Pernille and Morten have since given more than 100 concerts together and Jónína and Morten in 2012 gave the concert Nordic Tones at the IsNord Festval in Iceland.
