Daníel Bjaranson is the Icelandic artist behind Icelandic music.  The guy who conducted the choir in Sigur Ros’ “Ara Batur”?  Bjarnason. The guy who conducts the Iceland Symphony Orchestra?  Bjarnason.  Although overshadowed by Nico Muhly on the Bedroom Community record label, Bjarnason is a leading musical figure in the circles that know him.  In February of 2010, Bjarnason released a record entitled Processions, featuring three of his compositions.  The first composition, Bow to String, is a three movement suite for multi-tracked cello, and its opening movement is a fiery rage of uneven time signatures, rapid melodies, and driving percussion from the bow of the cello. Check out Processions immediately.

I like this a lot. Reminds me a little of the second movement of Rachmaninov's cello concerto at the start.
