Living by the sea - Heimkynni við sjó
song cycle for soprano and piano
Text by Hannes Pétursson
The song cycle Living by the Sea appeared in 1997, with poems from Hannes Pétursson´s book of the same name (1980). The book contains sixty poems whose central theme is the poet´s home environment on the Álftanes Peninsula near Reykjavík. Karólína has chosen nine of these poems for her cycle, all reflecting man´s relationship with his environment.
Ingibjörg Guðjónsdóttir and Tinna Thorsteinsdóttir for whom the work was written, first performed this cycle in the National Art Gallery in Reykjavík on 19 April 1998.
