About

Víkingur Ólafsson’s second Deutsche Grammophon album, the pithily entitled Bach, contained a mixture of original works and transcriptions, which the pianist wove together in intriguing style.

Bach Reworks brings together atmospheric reworkings of music by composers such as Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Ben Frost, Peter Gregson and Valgeir Sigurđsson – reimaginings that artfully defragment the creations of Bach.

It also features a moving and intimate new work Ólafsson has written in memory of his late friend and colleague Jóhann Jóhannsson.

“Everything is there in Johann Sebastian’s music: architectural perfection and profound emotion,” says Ólafsson. In his hands, the universe that is Bach shines with new light.
