Icelandic composer and conductor Daníel Bjarnason is currently artist in residence with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and from next season will be composer in residence at the Muziekgebouw Frits Philips Eindhoven. A co-curator of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Reykjavik Festival, Daniel will be featured as both a conductor and composer in Los Angeles in April 2017.

 

Recent and upcoming commissions include works for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Rambert Dance Company, Britten Sinfonia, Jennifer Koh, So Percussion, Calefax and the Calder Quartet. Daníel is writing his first opera for the Danish National Opera in Aarhus which will be premiered in August 2017 as part of the Aarhus - Culture Capital of Europe celebrations. Based on the Susanne Bier film Brothers, the opera will be directed by Kasper Holten, and Steffen Aarfing will create the stage design. The librettist is Kerstin Perski.

Daníel Bjarnason’s music has been performed by conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, John Adams, James Conlon, André de Ridder, Louis Langrée and Ilan Volkov in venues such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, New York’s Lincoln Center, Harpa in Iceland and London’s Barbican. Daníel’s versatility as an artist has led to collaborations with a broad array of musicians outside the classical field including Sigur Rós, Brian Eno, Efterklang and Ben Frost.
