Iceland’s famous pianist, Víkingur Ólafsson, is a great fan of new music. He has performed work by countless contemporary composers including Thomas Adès, and put himself on the map with a recording of Philip Glass’ piano works that earned him the nickname ‘the Glenn Gould of Iceland’. However, Víkingur Ólafsson is also an excellent interpreter of more classical repertoire. His last CD, issued in September 2021 by Deutsche Grammophon, focuses on Mozart and his contemporaries. In this concert, he will play Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21. After this concerto, all members of the Belgian National Orchrestra can shine in Bartók's masterly Concerto for Orchestra.
