Ólafur Arnalds is an artist that plays comfortably, but innovatively, in the space between classical and electronic. As the first modern classical composer to be nominated for the Best Dance/Electronic Recording Grammy, the trailblazing artist has released the live audio from his popular Sunrise Session. First recorded in 2020, the session embraced the juxtaposing genres found in his work (watch the session, here).

 

The stunning ‘Sunrise Session II’ EP is a tribute to lighter days ahead that was recorded on the shortest day of the year – the Winter Solstice in 2021 – at the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavík, Iceland. Ólafur himself features on piano with labelmate Josin on vocals and thirteen brilliant musicians from the Reykjavík Recording Orchestra.
