About this playlist

This volcanic island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean has garnered a glowing reputation when it comes to all music, but perhaps in modern classical music above all. Despite its tiny population, Iceland's contemporary music scene is as vibrant and hip as anywhere. Composers and artists like Jóhann Jóhannsson and Víkingur Ólafsson demonstrate the fresh, forward-looking approach so frequently found in the music of Iceland.
