Fresh from his hugely acclaimed and multi-award-winning album Johann Sebastian Bach, Víkingur Ólafsson’s third Deutsche Grammophon recording pairs works by two revolutionary French composers separated by a century and a half: Jean-Philippe Rameau and Claude Debussy. In a series of one minute videos the Icelandic pianist shares his thoughts on some of the most beautiful pieces ever created for the keyboard.
