Almost an entire lifetime packed into just 44 minutes… This début album from Eydís Evensen draws on the 27 years the Icelandic composer and pianist has spent on earth. The Greenhouse studios in Reykjavik, where this album was recorded, are run by Valgeir Sigurðsson, who has worked with Björk, Nico Muhly, CocoRosie and Ben Frost among others. Bylur is a beautiful oddity made up of 13 pieces for piano, strings and brass, some of which were composed when Evensen was just a child. This musical self-portrait shines a light on the neoclassical scene, which is already filled with many artists who defy classification, such as Max Richter, Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Jean-Michel Blais and others.
