Oceans by María H.M. Sigfúsdóttir performed by Philharmonia London

María Sigfúsdóttir’s Oceans is an exhilarating appetiser for the series, which focusses on Nordic composers’ relationships with the natural world. From a peaceful, meditative opening, Sigfúsdóttir’s music grows in power, evoking the swell of the ocean and the cry of the wind.
