The Austrian Victor Urbancic's (1903-1958) key role to Iceland's music scene

When Austria was annexed by Nazi Germany in 1938, Victor Urbancic tried in vain to emigrate to Switzerland or the US. In his desperation he took a post in Iceland. In the end he stayed there for the rest of his life. In these 20 years he played an important role in different fields of music in Iceland, e.g. by conducting the first opera performances at the newly founded National Theatre of Iceland. Through his teaching he formed a full generation of Icelandic composers.
