One year, one work

Anyone who always plays the same thing could easily be suspected of being lazy. Unless his name is Vikingur Ólafsson: the Icelandic pianist is known for the intensity with which he tackles the works. When he now devotes an entire season exclusively to Bach's "Goldberg Variations", it is a journey of exploration – to the music, to himself. By the time of his Zurich recital, he will have played the variation cycle 30 times, in Helsinki and Toronto, in Rome and Paris, in Krün and Barum. And he will undoubtedly have travelled long distances, and not only geographically.
