Danny Norbury is from the UK who makes “modern classical” music. Wonderful use of cellos and violins. It actually reminded me of Clint Mansell’s score for the 2006 The Fountain directed by Darren Aronofsky. Searching on Youtube, I find that I’m not the only individual who made this connection …

Album of the year material. Truly remarkable.

It sports piano pieces similar to what you would find in acts like Library Tapes (an act Mr. Norbury has contributed to in the past, incidentally). Listening to this album solidifies my belief that the piano, the cello, and the violin are some of the most richest instruments the human race has invented. Full of concentrated emotion, all intricately weaved together to make a quilt of refuge in audio-form. A modern classical masterpiece.

If you enjoy this, you might try Hildur Guðnadóttir.
