Víkingur Ólafsson: From Afar Limited Edition Crystal Clear 2LP

From Afar is a personal love letter to life and music by one of the most critically acclaimed classical artists of our time, Víkingur Ólafsson. In his most ambitious album to date, Ólafsson delivers a new album full of beautiful arrangements with the repertoire mirrored on both grand piano & upright piano. “Throughout the album, there are intimate conversations and messages from afar – closely knit canons, transcriptions and dedications, as well as distant echoes of nearly forgotten, ancient melodies”–Ólafsson.  Includes art card signed by Víkingur Ólafsson
