Víkingur Ólafsson has been invited to curate the Apple Music ‘Piano Chill’ playlist for the week starting Friday 20th November. Read what Víkingur had to say about his selection and influences for the playlist below.
“I love to create my own playlists and am happy to put together Piano Chill for you on Apple Music. It has mostly tranquil sounds from different, wonderful artists, from John Cage’s In a Landscape to Fréderic Chopin’s Waltz in A minor, Johannes Brahms’ Intermezzo in E flat to Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Englabörn Rework, J.S. Bach’s Organ Sonata to Keith Jarrett’s Answer Me. Our listening to music is always influenced by its context, what comes before and what follows. I hope you will enjoy the path I’ve suggested on this occasion.”
