Claudio Puntin clarinet, bass clarinet
Gerdur Gunnarsdóttir violin, vocal

Enginn lai ödrum frekt
Hvert örstutt spor
Sofdu unga astin min
Kvaedid um fuglana
New names to the ECM roster, Claudio Puntin and Gerdur Gunnarsdóttir arrive with a highly unusual project in "Ylir" - a musical topography of Iceland, an Iceland both observed and imagined, mirrored in legend and folklore as well as in the work of composers of our time. The music on "Ylir" is highly contemporary yet also timeless; it has very deep roots.
