Víkingur Ólafsson has won the Limelight 2020 “Recording of the Year” and “Instrumental Recording of the Year” awards for his latest album, Debussy Rameau. Last year, he received the “International Artist of the Year” award from the magazine for his Johann Sebastian Bach album.
“No pianist since the maverick figure of Glenn Gould has stamped his signature on the piano repertoire with such exciting individuality of spirit and intelligence of execution as the young Icelandic virtuoso Víkingur Ólafsson.” — (Michael Quinn for Limelight Magazine, 5*)
