Ólafur Arnalds – Island Songs – vii. Doria

January 16, 2017

Reykjavík is my home. It’s where I live, work and play. For this final week I wanted to concentrate on the people around me who inspire those pieces. Because ultimately it is people, rather than places that inspire music and art. For Doria, I invite you to Iðnó Concert Hall where I gathered my closest friends, family and contributors to Island Songs to take part in this final recording session.

This final video is wonderfully shot and I’m showing off my new instrument for the first time!
