After the remarkable global success of his award-winning Bach recording, celebrated Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson returns with his third solo album. Debussy · Rameau juxtaposes pieces by two of the greatest French composers – both musical revolutionaries – exploring the contrasts and common ground between them. Ólafsson says, “As extraordinary innovators of both harmony and form, with a unique ear for color and a keen sense of the theatrical, both Rameau and Debussy wrote music which engages more senses than just that of hearing.”
