Hildur Guðnadóttir Joins Deutsche Grammophon
15th October 2019
Hildur Guðnadóttir has signed a recording agreement with Deutsche Grammophon, following the phenomenal success of her work on HBO’s award-winning drama Chernobyl, for which she won an Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition last month, and her recent soundtrack to Todd Phillips’ Joker – winner of the Golden Lion at this year’s Venice Film Festival.
Hildur first appeared on Deutsche Grammophon in collaboration with the late Jóhann Jóhannsson and has also written for pianist Víkingur Ólafsson’s Bach Reworks album. “There’s a real creative energy around Deutsche Grammophon,” said Hildur Guðnadóttir. “I love its passion for exploring new sounds and its understanding of the power of collaboration. So many of the borders that divided music into different genres, and kept composers and performers from crossing them, have been replaced by an openness to works which connect with the emotions that unite us all.”
