    From Earth to Ether

    »Power, precision and personality« Gramophone Magazine

    There is an evaporating quality to the music of Icelandic composer and conductor Daníel Bjarnason, with sounds that can start softly or loudly, serenely or fiercely, but ultimately dissipate into intangible air. This album, conducted by Bjarnason himself, showcases these characteristics in captivating new versions of three works that in turn offer mesmerising transformations, ephemeral trembling sounds, and poignant reflections on the fleeting nature of companionship and love.
