After dazzling the Maison symphonique audience with his performance this past June, the Icelandic multi-instrumentalist returns to thrill yet another rapt crowd in Montréal’s majestic Église Saint Jean-Baptiste. The artist will present his 4th solo album re:member, released in August and composed  on his “stratus” piano, an instrument specially modified by the musician, allowing him to produce unique sounds. Weaving dreamlike melodies and melancholy poetry, the music of Ólafur Arnalds invites listeners to plunge their senses into a sweet, spellbinding torpor.
