Never miss another 'Olafur Arnalds' show
This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Fragile, emotional, classical indie music is a good way to describe Icelandic artist Olafur Arnalds' music. An obvious comparison is to Sigur Ros, but Arnalds is sculpting his own epic, string-laden compositions. He as always enjoyed pushing boundaries with both his studio work and live-shows. He has built up a dedicated international following and is well established for his genre-crossing work blending classical, pop and ambient/electronica influences to a unique musical language. He also scored a BAFTA award winning soundtrack for ITV's popular drama series 'Broadchurch'.

Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is an Associate Ensemble at the Barbican, has residencies in Norwich, Cambridge and Brighton, and a chamber series at Wigmore Hall. Britten Sinfonia enjoys a growing international profile, and is frequently heard on disc, BBC Radio 3 and commercial radio.
'But as always with this orchestra there was more to savour than just stellar performance. The programme was ingeniously shaped' (Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph)
'The playing was marked by the kind of luminous and infectious beauty that only comes from a true marriage of mastery and love' (The Times0
'The UK's most consistently dynamic chamber ensemble' (The New Statesman).
