||"Borealis" For Solo Piano
"With Arni Egilssonís Borealis weíre with a composer who means serious business. Despite its short duration, Borealis
is a big piece. After a demonstrative opening, a calmer, more sustained section gives respite but the opening
returns, as does its foil. Loud or quiet, this is disturbing music, uneasy but hypnotic." Bob Briggs, Music Web Intíl
"Borealis conveys an impressive sound-portrait of the Icelandlic winter night and supernatural shifting colours of the
aurora borealis.The music that emerges has a dangerous edge and a sense of awe and latent catastrophe."
Rob Barnett, Music Web Intíl
