Review
"... contained some of the most adventurous and abstract music of Dark Music Days.... and expressive journey that showcased Sigurjónsdóttir’s mastery of the extreme upper register.... The Sorceress, a multi-movement work written for Sigurjónsdóttir, brought the program into furious overdrive.."
