About

35 tracks and just one name: Johann Sebastian Bach. Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson continues his successful recording career with a collection of well and lesser known pieces by the famous baroque composer.

The selection includes reworks by Bach himself of composers such as Vivaldi and Marcello, and Busoni and transcriptions/reworks of chorales by Víkingur Ólafsson himself.

Víkingur Ólafsson’s interpretations of the baroque repertoire are 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.
