Editors’ Notes Ólafur Arnalds, widely known for his powerful film and TV scores (including Broadchurch), is joined by pianist Alice Sara Ott for a haunting new take on Chopin's music. Turning their backs on the traditional approach to piano recordings, they tracked down a number of old instruments and recorded them with beguiling warmth and intimacy—occasionally adding an atmospheric ambience. You feel close to the piano and, strangely, closer to the music. Many tracks use Chopin as a starting point, which is magically interwoven with the rich instrumental language that Arnalds' many fans will immediately recognize.
