Duo Harpverk was formed in 2007 by harpist Katie Buckley and percussionist Frank Aarnink. The duo’s intention is to commission and perform music for harp and percussion. Since beginning they have commissioned 60 pieces from composers in Iceland and all over the world.
Although they have many works from more experienced composers, the main focus of Harpverk is to commission and perform the music of both young Icelandic composers and young composers worldwide. They have toured Denmark, the Netherlands and the Faroe Islands and taken part in the Danish OpenDays festival, the Icelandic Music Days in Amsterdam, and the Summartónar Festival in the Faroe Islands. They are performing in Washington D.C.‘s Kennedy Center in March 2013 as a part of the Nordic Cool Festival. Duo Harpverk has released one CD "The Greenhouse Sessions" in 2012.
