soloist, having performed in his native Iceland and throughout Europe
and the United States. He was brought to the United States by the late
Sir John Barbirolli to play with the Houston Symphony Orchestra. While
there, he established an enduring relationship with Sir Andre Previn,
one of Hollywood's top composers. A versatile instrumentalist, equally
comfortable in jazz and classical venues he has recorded a classical
solo album with Vladimir Ashkenazy and a jazz album with Ray Brown.

orchestras of the Los Angeles recording studios, serving as Principal
Bassplayer for most of Hollywood's top composers.
