Haukur Tómasson (b.1960) studied in both Europe and United States. He has won many prizes for his music, but the 2004 Nordic Council Music Prize for his chamber opera Guðrún´s 4th Song, firmly established his stature as one of Scandinavia’s most outstanding composers. In 2011 
he won the competition for a new orchestral piece to be performed at the inaugural concert of the new concert hall Harpa in Reykjavík.
