“Gunnlaugs proves that jazz can have a wider appeal without losing integrity.” John Kelman, All About Jazz
The intimacy of a solo piano concert is something Icelandic jazz pianist Sunna Gunnlaugs
embraces when she gets the opportunity. Having performed all over the world with her trio, quartet and in various duos she has found the direct connection between the artist, the instrument and the audience in a solo setting is unlike any experience a musician can have. Gunnlaugs
brings the listener with her as she follows her melodic sense and lingers in the quiet moments; tension and release at its essence. Her own music translates well to this setting, as this is as it was when she was composing it. She also delves into American jazz standards
and the occasional pop tune when performing solo, but whatever the material it all becomes woven into Sunna’s musical fabric.
