Homage to Mozart by Víkingur Ólafsson, Christoph Eschenbach and Konzerthausorchester Berlin

The acclaimed Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson partners with Christoph Eschenbach and the Konzerthausorchester Berlin for Mozart’s beautiful Piano Concerto in A major K488 to conclude his 2019/20 Konzerthaus residency.
