The Philharmonia Orchestra presents enticing works for piano and small ensemble featuring boundary-pushing pianist Víkingur Ólafsson.
Ólafsson first rose to prominence through his two debut albums, which showcased the music of Philip Glass and JS Bach respectively.
His bold statement in presenting the contemporary alongside the traditional has served to build up a career of immense versatility and an arresting style.
At the heart of tonight’s programme lies Bent Sørensen’s Rosenbad.
Sørensen’s veiled, dreamy musical voice spins three different soundscapes around a single repeated piano part.
British composer Edmund Finnis has been commissioned to write a set of miniatures for solo piano.
