Ólafur Arnalds
Ólafur Arnalds is a gifted young Icelandic composer whose gushingly lovely music straddles postclassical ambience and post-rock reverie, with generous sides of melancholy balladry and skittering electronica. His latest CD, For Now I Am Winter, is just out on the newly resuscitated Mercury Classics label.
