CAPUT has established itself as a force in Icelandic cultural life and as one of the leading new music ensembles in Nordic countries. The ensemble was founded in 1987 by young Icelandic musicians. The sole purpose of the ensemble is the performance and recordings of new music. Caput has premiered countless works by Icelandic and "Overseas" composers. The long list of composers that have worked with the ensemble shows clearly the immense diversity of musical creation in late 20th century and early 21st century. CAPUT has performed in 15 European countries, America and Japan and China. On the list are among others: Warsaw Autumn, The Gulbenkian Festival - Lisbon, Holland Festival, Prague Marathon, The International New Music Week - Bucharest, New Concert Series - Toronto, Santa Cecilia - Rome, Wigmore hall - London, Bejing Modern Music Festival. CAPUT has published over 20 CDs for labels in Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, England and the United States, with publisers like BIS, Naxos, Classico, GM Recordings, Touch, Bad Taste and Deutsche Grammophon, to name a few. Recent recordings will be published by Sono Luminus, US. For further info see
