Multi-award-winning pianist V¡kingur Olafsson turns his attention to the music of MOZART. Juxtaposing works by Mozart, Haydn and C.P.E. Bach with rarely-recorded Galuppi and Cimarosa, Mozart & Contemporaries dispels the image of Mozart as the angelic and prodigious idiot savant, instead presenting a mature composer through music primarily dating from the 1780s. All is artfully brought together by Olafsson's signature thought-provoking programming.
