Works by Galuppi, Mozart, C.P.E. Bach, Haydn and Cimarosa
An “outright sensation… the playing was transfixing.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
Icelandic virtuoso Víkingur Ólafsson combines out-of-this-world musicianship with an unusual gift for programming. His concerts are carefully calibrated compositions; each segment comments on those that come before and after. At Hahn Hall, Ólafsson will perform a Mozart & Contemporaries program that sheds light on lesser-known figures such as Domenico Cimarosa and Baldassare Galuppi and illuminates obscure, daring works by Mozart and Haydn. This intimate recital offers a rare opportunity to explore unheard depths and connections among music’s greatest composers.
Please note: Hahn Hall is located at the Music Academy of the West
