In this 2CD deluxe edition, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson continues his exploration of Bach.

His original Bach album (CD1 of this deluxe set) has been highly successful and contains a collection of well and lesser known pieces by the famous baroque composer. This also includes reworks by Bach himself of composers such as Vivaldi and Busoni and Transcriptions/Reworks of Chorals by Víkingur Ólafsson himself. Víkingur’s interpretation of the baroque repertoire is crystal clear, modern and hauntingly beautiful. In his very own style Víkingur perfectly captures Bach as a master of balance whose music is the ideal combination of emotion and intellect, singing melody and sculpted counterpoint.

In CD2, Vikingur collaborates with Ben Frost, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Joachim Roedelius on contemporary Bach Reworks.

“Iceland's Glenn Gould“

(The New York Times )

„Spectacular results, his phrasing is perfection”

(BBC Music Magazine)

“Breathtakingly brilliant pianist"

(Gramophone)

“He manages to surprise even in the most familiar works, taming the different voices with authority while allowing room for adventurous turns — a blend of respect and audaciousness that makes for a refreshing addition to the crowded field of Bach recordings.” – The New York Times
