4 movements: 1. Prelude, 2. Rondo I, 3. Intermezzo, 4. Rondo II
Hringhenda was composed in 1989 for Einar Jóhannesson who premiered the piece in Sweden the same year. The Icelandic premiere took place at the Skálholt Summer Festival in 1991.
Hringhenda is in four movements: Prelude, Rondo I, Intermezzo and Rondo II. Rondo I and II are the longest movements and as the title indicates in a kind of a free rondo form. The other two movements are short meditations in a free form.
