From Afar, his most recent album, was released in October 2022. One of today’s most sought-after artists, Ólafsson has received multiple honors, including the Rolf Schock Prize in Musical Arts (2022), Opus Klassik Awards for Solo Recording / Instrumental (twice, in 2019 and 2020), Album of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards (2018), and being named Gramophone magazine Artist of the Year (2019). Ólafsson continues to perform as artist-in-residence at the world’s top orchestras, concert halls, and festivals, and works with today’s greatest composers. In the 2022–23 season, in addition to making his New York Philharmonic debut he performs with ensembles including London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, The Cleveland Orchestra, the London and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestras, and the Toronto and Montreal Symphony Orchestras. A captivating communicator both on and offstage, Víkingur Ólafsson’s significant talent extends to broadcast, having presented several of his own series for television and radio. He was artist-in-residence for three months on BBC Radio 4’s flagship arts program Front Row. His live broadcasts during lockdown, from an empty Harpa concert hall in Reykjavík, reached millions of listeners around the world.
