Ólafur Arnalds, the Icelandic star who plays electro-acoustic music based on classical, minimalist roots and featuring experimentation in a wide array of genres, is returning to Müpa Budapest. We previously saw him perform in 2018 on the Hungarian leg of his last highly acclaimed world tour. From May 2022, he will present his 2020 album 'some kind of peace' live for the first time, playing first in North America and then the old continent. Müpa Budapest will be his first step on his European tour beginning at the end of June. Live, his intimate record promises to create a sincere and meaningful concert experience.
Ólafur Arnalds exploded onto the contemporary classical pop music scene in the late 2000s. He gained great acclaim with his early records as a songwriter and producer (Eulogy For Evolution - 2007,… And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness - 2010), which also provided space for electronic music. He also became a much sought-after film score composer, achieving widespread popularity with his music for the highly successful television series Broadchurch. He has worked alongside Nils Frahm and p...lays microhouse as a member of Kiasmos, while his most recent albums have seen more of a lean towards ambient electronica. For obvious reasons, he was unable to present his 2020 album some kind of peace in a live setting for some time. His tour beginning in May 2022 is likely to evoke even greater emotional intensity in both the performer and the audience. Particularly as the combination of his new album and the concert experience promises to produce some of Arnalds's most personal, most revealing and rawest performances ever. In addition to compositions from his latest record, some of his older songs will be given new life, as this time, they will feature the self-playing mechanical piano Stratus, designed by Arnalds himself to create unexpected harmonies and surprising melodies, making each concert a completely unique experience.
