SAMAN, a composition by Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds is part of a new album coming out next year, with more singles to be released soon.
“Saman means “together”, but the music is very intimate. So for me, it’s almost as if it’s a longing for togetherness. So being by yourself, but also feeling connected”, says Lavinia.
“I met Ólafur Arnalds a few years ago and since then I have been playing his music with a lot of fun . His compositions feel close and make the feeling that you are with him in an old living room in Iceland, surrounded by overwhelming nature and silence."
“In pieces of composers like Arnalds there are always darker and lighter elements. The harp is very good at this; the dark sounding bass and the lighter high nuts that open everything . This combination adds warmth and layiness to the music". - Lavinia Meijer
