An episode of the popular TV series West Wing featured a storyline about the music of Iceland. Alex Van Oss uses that fictional depiction to tell the story of the real music of Iceland. An example is Icerap 2000, a new work by the country's leading composer, which has been performed in several American cities by the Iceland Sympony Orchestra.
