Reference for the repertory: The Record Collector, March 2010. This comes from an article written by the daughter of the tenor. The information regarding Copenhagen has dates and more information, while the information regarding Italy is pretty scarce regarding dates and places, even some operas have no dates at all. That's a pity as Íslandi started his career in Italy and was quite popular there.
I would like to thank Thomas Silverbörg for the recording and pictures.
