Johannsson, Johann: Englabörn & Variations LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Deutsche Grammophon reissues Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson's critically acclaimed 2002 solo debut Englabörn in a 2LP-set featuring the remastered original album and eleven reworks by leading contemporary names like Ryuichi Sakamoto and A Winged Victory for the Sullen (Dustin O'Halloran). Derived from music he wrote for an Icelandic play of the same name, Englabörn was written for string quartet, piano, organ, glockenspiel and percussion. These elements were processed and manipulated, adding delicate electronic backgrounds to the otherwise entirely acoustic recordings.
