Víkingur Ólafsson

Piano

Biography

Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has made a profound impact with his remarkable combination of highest-level musicianship and visionary programs. His recordings for Deutsche Grammophon — Philip Glass Piano Works (2017), Johann Sebastian Bach (2018), Debussy Rameau (2020), Mozart & Contemporaries (2021), and From Afar (2022) — captured public and critical imagination and have led to career streams of more than 600 million.

In October 2023 Ólafsson released his anticipated new album on Deutsche Grammophon of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations. He is dedicating his entire 2023–24 season to a Goldberg Variations world tour, performing the work across six continents throughout the year. He brings Bach’s masterpiece to major concert halls, including London’s Southbank Centre, New York’s Carnegie Hall, Wiener Konzerthaus, Philharmonie de Paris, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Reykjavík’s Harpa Concert Hall, Los Angeles’s Walt Disney Hall, Sala São Paulo, Shanghai Symphony Hall, Tonhalle Zürich, Philharmonie Berlin, Mupa Budapest, KKL Luzern, and Alte Oper Frankfurt.

Now one of the most sought-after artists of today, Ólafsson’s multiple awards include Opus Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year (2023), Opus Klassik Solo Recording Instrumental (twice), CoScan’s International Nordic Person of the Year (2023), Rolf Schock Prize for Music (2022), Gramophone’s Artist of the Year (2019), and Album of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards (2019).

A captivating communicator both on and off stage, Víkingur Ólafsson’s significant talent extends to broadcast, having presented several of his own series for television and radio. He was artist-in-residence for three months on BBC Radio 4’s flagship arts program Front Row, broadcasting live during lockdown from an empty Harpa Concert Hall and reaching millions of listeners around the world.
