Innovative as ever, Víkingur creates two musical sound worlds that appeal to a wide audience. Inspired by an encounter with the iconic Hungarian composer György Kurtág, this album is a musical response with works by Kurtág, Bach, Brahms, Mozart, Adès, Schumann, Birgisson and Kaldalons The album "From Afar" includes three new arrangements by the pianist and a world premiere recording. Beautifully evocative titles and forgotten melodies form a thread of stories within a larger structure: nature, home, childhood, family. The works were recorded on both grand piano and upright piano.
