Víkingur Ólafsson Plays Glass Etude 5


When Philip Glass handpicked some pianists to perform all of his Etudes together at the Barbican in London last year, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson was one of them. The Financial Times claimed: “Best of all was Ólafsson in the supersensitive stillness of Etude 5.”

To celebrate the 80th birthday of Philip Glass, Deutsche Grammophon have released a new album Philip Glass Piano Works which features Víkingur Ólafsson in his debut album for DG.

Check out this video of Víkingur Ólafsson playing the Etude 5.
