VōKINGUR óLAFSSON - REFLECTIONS [CD]
Catalogue No.: 4839222
Release Date: 12th March 2021
Deutsche Grammophon is proud to present Víkingur Ólafsson’s Reflections available for pre-order now and slated for release on 12 March 2021. Víkingur’s most recent album for Deutsche Grammophon – Debussy · Rameau – shot to the top of the US and UK classical charts and high into Germany’s pop charts when it was released last year. Now Víkingur presents Reflections, a new album featuring “reworkings” by Ólafsson and other contemporary artists - alongside several of the Icelandic pianist’s unreleased Debussy recordings.Víkingur Ólafsson’s remarkable originality and powerful musical conviction have seen him become one of the most sought-after artists of today. The global success of Debussy · Rameau follows that of his award-winning Johann Sebastian Bach album and its sister release, Bach Reworks, featuring reimaginings by such diverse artists as Peter Gregson, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Skúli Sverrisson. The same thread of inspiration runs through this release, Reflections, as Ólafsson and his fellow composers celebrate the work of two French masters and translate their musical languages into a contemporary idiom.
