Today, the first EP from Víkingur Ólafsson’s new project “Reflections” is released. This project showcases contemporary reworks of the music of the two revolutionary French composers, Debussy and Rameau, that Ólafsson released earlier this year. Ólafsson says: “I wanted to explore certain works from fresh perspectives, to reimagine them and invite other composers to rework elements of these extraordinary pieces. I’m delighted that Deutsche Grammophon agreed with me on continuing this creative conversation with Debussy, Rameau and some of today’s most imaginative musicians.”
This first EP Reflections Part 1 is released today, on November 20, 2020 and will be followed by the release of three more EPs, in January, February and March respectively, while the full album will be released on CD and LP on 12 March 2021.
