Following his critically acclaimed recording of piano works by Philip Glass, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has released his second album, a collection of both well-known and rarely performed works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Renowned for his innovative music projects, Ólafsson offers listeners a very personal vision of Bach’s intricate keyboard music, artfully weaving Bach’s original works together with transcriptions by Busoni, Kempff, Ziloti, Rachmaninoff, and Ólafsson himself.
