Víkingur Ólafsson

Few musicians match Ólafsson for creative flair
-BBC Music Magazine


Possessing a rare combination of passionate musicality, explosive virtuosity, and intellectual curiosity, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has been heralded “Iceland’s Glenn Gould” by the New York Times (Anthony Tommasini, August 2017). Before lighting up the international scene in 2016, Víkingur won all the major prizes in his native country, including the Order of the Falcon, four Musician of the Year prizes at the Icelandic Music Awards, and the Icelandic Optimism Prize.
