“Moonbow” is Gunnar Andreas Kristinsson’s second album, the first to be released on a major label. The music, performed by leading members of the Icelandic contemporary music scene, was recorded in Kaldalo’n and Norðurljo’s, the two recital halls of Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall.

While Gunnar’s first album, “Patterns”, contains pieces from his study and freelance years in The Hague, “Moonbow” is a selection of more mature works from a fruitful period in the composer’s life after moving back to Iceland in 2009, with all the experience from the Netherlands in his pocket. The album features a trio, a quartet and a quintet, flanked by two larger ensemble pieces. The works are diverse, not only in terms of instrumentation but also in terms of musical subject and give a good insight into Gunnar’s distinctive and personal sound-world.
