Opening the programme, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson performs Prokofiev's Visions Fugitives, written between 1915 and 1917, the title coming from the Russian 'Mimolyotnosti' inspired by the Russian poet Konstantin Balmont's words "In every fleeting vision I see worlds, Filled with the fickle play of rainbows."
