Einar Jóhannesson studied the clarinet at the Reykjavík College of Music with Gunnar Egilson and continued his studies at The Royal College of Music in London, where he won the coveted Frederick Thurston prize. His main teachers there were Bernard Walton and John McCaw. Later he was awarded the prize for young Nordic soloists by the Sonning Foundation in Copenhagen. Einar has appeared as a soloist and chamber music player throughout Europe, Asia, America and Australia, often presenting pieces specially written for him by Icelandic composers. He is principal clarinet of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, solo clarinettist of the Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra, and a founding member of the Reykjavík Wind Quintet. In addition, he sings with Voces Thules, a group of six male voices specializing in medieval Icelandic church music. He has recorded for the Merlin, Chandos and BIS labels as well as for various radio and television networks.
