Garrick Ohlsson in Recital

SSOOhlsson

 

The artist of the month is Garrick Ohlsson, an American classical pianist.  Ohlsson was the first American to win first prize in the International Frederic Chopin Piano Competition in 1970.  He also won first prize at the Busoni Competition in Italy and the Montreal Piano Competition in Canada.  Ohlsson was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize in 1994 and received the 1998 University Musical Society Distinguished Artist Award in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

 

Although Ohlsson is especially noted for his performances of the works of Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, he has a broad range from Bach and Busoni to Copland and Gershwin.  Ohlsson possesses an unusually vast repertoire that ranges over some eighty concertos.  He is also known for his exceptional keyboard stretch (a 12th in the left hand and an 11th in the right).

 

On Monday the 15th of February at 7:00pm, he dazzles us with a program of Granados and Mussorgsky at the City Recital Hall Angel Place.
