This session with Icelandic composer and producer Valgeir Sigurðsson and American violist, Nadia Sirota, from March 2013, was recorded just after their intimate and collaborative performance in our intimate theater. Sigurðsson is the co-founder, with Nico Muhly and Ben Frost, of the renowned Reykjavík-based record label and artist collective, Bedroom Community, and related Greenhouse Studios. Sirota is a soloist focused on exposing new classical music to a broad audience through collaborations with artists such as  The National, David Bowie, and Björk.

Valgeir Sigurðsson and Nadia Sirota perform “The Crumbling,” “Gone Not Forgotten,” and “Plainsong” at The Warhol in a gallery reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory studio.
