Ólafsson brings his creative vision to a rich programme featuring Bach’s Partita No.6 in E minor, with its clarity, intellect and immense emotional range.
Followed by a selection of works by Chopin all in the same key, F minor, both composer and performer explore the different poetic worlds woven out of one tonality.
Brahms' ambitious and exuberant Sonata No.3, also in F minor, completes this original programme.
`Amazing virtuosity; monumental, rapt intensity' (The Daily Telegraph).
