Classicism and modernism – two terms with contrary meanings. But ÓLAFUR ARNALDS manages to combine these contradictions in his music. The Icelander blends opulent, classical compositions and contemporary electronic influences into songs that defy any comparison. His third album »For Now I Am Winter« features a whole Orchestra, as well as the singer Arnór Dan. ÓLAFUR ARNALDS turns classical music into something classy, yet cool –we’d like to see anyone else do that!
