Cinematic contemporary classical music FFO Olafur Arnalds / Cinematic Orchestra
“Virtuoso” (The Times) handpan player and composer Manu Delago returns with a brand-new album and his biggest live show to date. Circadian takes the listener through the cycle of sleep stages, emulating REM, light sleep, deep sleep and an abrupt awakening. Delago was inspired by the concept of individual circadian rhythms, due in part to his own lack of sleep as an international touring musician with Björk, Olafur Arnalds, Cinematic Orchestra and Anoushka Shankar. See the “masterful and sensitive musician” (The Telegraph) with his ensemble live at Fiddlers.
“The album could very much sit wonderfully amongst the contemporary classical giants of the present, but there is no escaping its distinctiveness” (The 405)
