Vkingur Olafsson's exciting project looks at the dark side of Mozart and his Contemporaries in this tribute with a twist. Music is from W. A. Mozart, Baldassare Galuppi, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Domenico Cimarosa, Franz Joseph Haydn and three new arrangements by Vkingur.

"Far from the glowing image of the angelic prodigy, the music on this album is mostly by the Mozart of the 1780s, a grown man and a mature composer — who in the preceding years had come to know adversity," explained Vkingur Olafsson. "This is the period when Mozart was not just perfecting the Classical tradition but subtly subverting it, his graceful touch as featherlight as always but the shadows darker, the nuances and ambiguities more profound."
