Eydís Evensen

Music / Classical / Iceland

In line with the traditions of her homeland, Eydís Evensen achieved an outstanding feat of tonal expressiveness with her debut “Bylur” last year. The Icelander carefully plays her way through dreamy piano harmonies, sometimes solo, sometimes accompanied by violin, cello or trumpet, but always with a well-formulated melancholy and a drama that immediately wreaks havoc on one’s own soul. Evensen composed all her works in isolation, in the seclusion of the Icelandic hinterland or in her flat in Reykjavik. It’s music for lovers and for mourners, for cool sunrises as well as October days on which clouds obscure our central star. It’s precisely this delicate ambivalence resonating in Evensen's compositions that shows how far her compositional process has already evolved. With her latest EP "Frost" (2022), she puts this to show once again, but also shows that consistent advancement is something she holds very dear.
