Áskell Másson Icelandic Composer

Icelandic composer Áskell Másson invites us on a musical voyage in his "langskip" (the magnificent longship of the Viking conquerors). Secret destinations aboard a frail craft, braving the storms of sound from which ring out, against a background of water, wind and creaking of ancient timbers, the drums and songs of life in our own time.
