Víkingur Ólafsson / Ari Magg

Brussels Philharmonic, Vlaams Radiokoor, Vikingur Ólafsson

Anu Tali, Bart Van Reyn, dir.

A programme full of contrasts : between symphonic sonority and vocal intensity. Or between composers, all from the far North, but each with a very distinctive approach and vision of composition. Some withdrawn and individual (such Pärt and Tormis), others belonging to a collective of like-minded musicians (Bjarnason), but all of them immune to any dictates regarding style.
