Ólafsson plays Grieg

Ken-ichiro Kobayashi conducts

Grieg Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5

Ken-ichiro Kobayashi conductor
Víkingur Ólafsson piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

‘He has the gift of making something familiar entirely his own, drawing you into a world where no other interpretation seems possible’, said Gramophone magazine of the young Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, when it made him its 2019 Artist of the Year. So imagine the sort of magic he’ll bring to Grieg’s Piano Concerto – one of those pieces that never stops sounding fresh. Ólafsson’s charisma will simply lift it onto another level. It’s the perfect curtain-raiser for Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony; another uninhibited classic, filled with melody after glorious melody, and supercharged with emotion. Conductor Ken-ichiro Kobayashi shares a composer’s insight and imagination.
