About this Performance

One of the stars of our 2017 Reykjavík Festival, Víkingur Ólafsson returns with a fascinating solo recital devoted to keyboard music by Bach and Philip Glass.

Please note: Pianist Vikingur Olafsson has replaced the previously scheduled Murray Perahia for this recital. Perahia has been forced to withdraw due to a medical setback that has prevented him from performing publicly. He looks forward to returning to the stage in the not too distant future, as soon as his recovery is complete.

Meet & Greet: Víkingur Ólafsson
Víkingur Ólafsson will be signing CDs in the LA Phil Store lobby after the concert! Pre-order your copy online and pick it up in the store.
