These four icelandic folk dances were arranged for orchestra by Leifs and Leopold Weninger, and follow the typical scheme of rímur poetry: AA-BB-A-CC-B-A(A).
The structure here is perfectly tonal, a rare feature among Leifs's works!
1st part

Performed by Iceland Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Osmo Vänskä
