The Icelander caused a sensation in the piano world with his 2016 debut album, devoted to the minimalist music of Philip Glass. He followed it up two years later with a Bach album whose unadorned clarity caused an entire country that thought it had invented Bach to prick up its ears. In his new recital programme, the sensitive pianist chooses Mozart as the centrepiece, surrounding him with Pre-Classical gems by Domenico Cimarosa, Baldassare Galuppi and Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach.
