Víkingur Ólafsson Performs Bach’s Goldberg Variations
Bach’s Goldberg Variations are gorgeously enigmatic musical gems, and Ólafsson makes them sparkle. No matter how many times you turn this work over, how many times you hold it up to the light, there’s always more to discover.

A gentle theme opens the work, followed by thirty short variations, each overflowing with experimentation and daring. A universe of musical possibility. The finale is a breathtaking conclusion to a remarkable experience with a pianist of supreme musical intelligence and style.
