Vikingur Olafsson – Mozart & Contemporaries (Clear Vinyl)

SKU: 0028948605262 Categories: , ,

Release Date : September 3rd 2021

The journey continues. Víkingur Ólafsson’s exciting new project looking at the dark side of Mozart and his Contemporaries. A Mozart tribute with a twist … An echo of an Age. Music from W. A. Mozart, Baldassare Galuppi, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Domenico Cimarosa, Franz Joseph Haydn. Including 3 new arrangements by Víkingur* “Far from the glowing image of the angelic prodigy, the music on this album is mostly by the Mozart of the 1780s, a grown man and a mature composer – who in the preceding years had come to know adversity,” explained Víkingur Ólafsson. “This is the period when Mozart was not just perfecting the Classical tradition but subtly subverting it, his graceful touch as featherlight as always but the shadows darker, the nuances and ambiguities more profound.”
