The Gramophone podcast


Aug 12, 2022

During holiday periods, we occasionally return to past podcasts, and this week, prompted by the news that he is about to release a new album inspired by an encounter with György Kurtág, we revisit a conversation from September 2021 with the Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson

James Jolly caught up by video call with the pianist at his home in Iceland just a few days after Ólafsson's triumphant debut at the 2021 BBC Proms to talk about the album 'Mozart & Contemporaries' which gathers music by CPE Bach, Galuppi, Cimarosa and Haydn around the great Wolfgang Amadeus.
