Ólafsson’s interpretations inhabit a unique, distinct and extraordinary world all their own.”

About the Event

In one of the most highly-anticipated debuts in PUC’s recent history, Icelandic sensation Víkingur Ólafsson—“the new superstar of the piano” (The Telegraph)—brings his trademark ability to breathe new life into classical convention with a program that is sure to transform how you think about and experience Mozart’s music. As part of Ólafsson’s vision to “see all music as contemporary music,” he invites us to rediscover this legendary composer by ingeniously setting his work within the framework of his contemporaries. It is no wonder that the recent Deutsche Grammophon recording of this completely hypnotizing and enlightening program has topped international charts, been streamed over two hundred million times, and won prestigious awards. To hear it live, conveyed through the sublime artistry of this young phenomenon, promises to be nothing short of revelatory.
