Ólafur Arnalds

He performs ‘Romance’ and ‘Erla’s Waltz’ at London’s Union Chapel.

Shortly after his Manchester Bridgewater Hall appearance alongside Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, accompanied by a symphony orchestra, Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Ólafur Arnalds was in London promoting recent album, ‘…And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness’.

Which is where he found time to perform two pieces in a back room at London’s Union Chapel on just a piano. We were treated to ‘Romance’ and ‘Erla’s Waltz’, both taken from 2009 interactive project, ‘Found Songs’.
