New Release: “Philip Glass – Piano Works”

Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson pays tribute to the master of minimal music, Philip Glass, who recently turned 80 years old. Described by The New York Times as a “splendid pianist” and by Piano News as an “immense talent,” Ólafsson is much sought-after by international conductors, orchestras and artists as both a chamber and concert musician. In addition to the Etudes for solo piano, the album includes reworks of the originals for piano and string quartet.
