Ólafur Arnalds - Live 23.10.2008 Kendal UK


















Ólafur Arnalds - Live 23.10.2008 Kendal UK

Ólafur Arnalds is in my view, one of todays most talented modern classical composers. At only 21 years old he manages to find a depth of emotional intensity and maturity that is extroidinary for someone of his age.
This concert was recorded in a very small venue with only 30 or so people. It was unusual in that there was a complete lack of any noise from the audience. Whether this was from reverence or just English reserve is difficult to say but the music was very emotive and moving. I always feel deep parts of myself being touched by Ólafur's music with last nights concert being no exception. I have enormous admiration for this artist so I have included four videos which you can find below . . .
NB: Thanks to !linus and Rubardidoo for help with track listings and for doing it right

"If you thought Sigur Rós had the patent on hauntingly beautiful and meticulously compelling music coming out of Iceland, then Ólafur Arnalds is here to educate you otherwise. - Eulogy For Evolution is perhaps this years most hauntingly emotive sounding experience."
