DESCRIPTION

 

 

Vikingur Olafsson Bach Piano And Reworks CD

 

 

 

In this 2CD deluxe edition, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson continues his exploration of Bach.

His original Bach album (CD1 of this deluxe set) has been highly successful and contains a collection of well and lesser known pieces by the famous baroque composer. This also includes reworks by Bach himself of composers such as Vivaldi and Busoni and Transcriptions/Reworks of Chorals by Víkingur Ólafsson himself. Víkingur’s interpretation of the baroque repertoire is crystal clear, modern and hauntingly beautiful. In his very own style Víkingur perfectly captures Bach as a master of balance whose music is the ideal combination of emotion and intellect, singing melody and sculpted counterpoint.

In CD2, Vikingur collaborates with Ben Frost, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Hildur  Guðnadóttir, Joachim Roedelius on contemporary Bach Reworks.
