Gulli Björnsson is an Icelandic guitarist and composer currently based in Phoenix, Arizona. Written in 2015 and dedicated to Steve Cowan, Arctic Sonata was premiered by Steve at the Toronto Guitar Weekend in April 2016.
The piece was inspired by the two Icelandic sagas (the Saga of Erik the Red and the Greenland Saga) that tell the tale of Vikings colonising Greenland and North America.
This is the premier recording of Arctic Sonata.
The album also includes solo guitar pieces by Albert Roussel, Darius
Milhaud, Jacques Ibert, Francis Poulenc, Frank Martin, Camargo Guarnieri, Mario Gangi, Adam Khatchaturian, Ennio Morricone and Cyril Scott.
