The Mountain View Connection Concert Series opens its 2014/15 season with a tour de force performance of The Goldberg Variations by J. S. Bach.
Calgary is one of the few stops for Iceland’s rising star, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson.
The 30 Goldberg Variations is often regarded as the most serious and ambitious composition ever written for keyboard. Based on a single ground bass theme, the variations display not only Bach’s exceptional knowledge of diverse styles of music of the day but also his exquisite performing techniques.
Víkingur Ólafsson has performed over 20 piano concertos and collaborated with such conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy and has performed with various orchestras around the world. Víkingur has built up fruitful relationships with artists and audiences around the world, and is quickly establishing an international reputation as a charismatic performer of great artistic integrity.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear the legendary piece!
