Description of Víkingur Ólafsson – Bach: Prelude & Fugue, BWV 855a: 1. Prelude No. 10 in B Minor (Transcr. Siloti)



Ólafsson teamed up with director Magnús Leifsson to shoot the video in a fish processing plant in Iceland, complete with grand piano. They use the fish, an early Christian symbol, to allude to the mysticism and timelessness of Bach’s music – as changeable as water, it has to be understood at a metalevel, given the many different ways in which composition, transcription and performance can be interwoven. “Everything is there in Bach’s music,” says the pianist, who transports the composer’s keyboard writing to new shores on his latest recording. Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson releases video featuring music from his new album, Johann Sebastian Bach.
