Icelander Ólafur Arnalds is a global powerhouse of composition and sound design, widely beloved for his unique compositions, combining strings and piano with beats in unexpected loops. Arnalds offers a fresh, modern twist on classical music, winning audiences over ever since his first album was released in 2007. His latest album, Some Kind of Peace (2020), is the journey of his personal and creative growth, set against the backdrop of a chaotic world. In this intriguing work, we’ll hear hints of those private experiences - sometimes even samples of the significant events themselves – woven into an album that is remarkable in its openness and its beauty.
