American pianist and composer Dustin O’Halloran is back with a new album called Silfur which is out now via Deutsche Grammophon. It includes ten solo piano performances alongside collaborations with fellow American composer and multi-instrumentalist Bryan Senti, Icelandic cellist Gyða Valtýsdóttir and the Siggi String Quartet. O’Halloran recorded the album with Berlin-based sound engineer Francesco Donadello and Icelandic musician Bergur Þórisson.
According to the artist, “it is an exploration of the music of my past and how it reflects back to me now in the present. Evoking images of different moments, places and periods of my life, and rediscovering the pieces that have stayed with me. Sometimes we can only understand ourselves by looking back, and hopefully, finding the thread of who we are and who we have always been.”
