Piano worksMusic CD - 2017
"Visionary Icelandic pianist Vikingur Olafsson celebrates Philip Glass's 80th birthday with his personal selection of pieces from the minimalist master's two books of solo piano Etudes - works in which, Olafsson says "Glass seems to be exploring the very essence of his ideas" - together with brand-new reworkings for piano and string quartet of two of the Etudes plus the hypnotic "Opening" from Glass's classic 1982 album Glassworks"--Container.
