Ólafur Arnalds | Doria

 

Ólafur Arnalds welcomes us into his world of minimalism with three pianos and string ensemble. We are drawn in with hopeful melodies led by the piano and echoed throughout the strings. A crescendo of chordal and melodic movement brings the short piece to its peak as the main motif is carried by each instrument. The strings drop to a whisper, concluding the piece as it began, with solo piano.
