Regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of the music of Chopin since winning the International Chopin Piano Competition in 1990, Garrick Ohlsson commands an enormous repertoire that ranges the entire piano literature. After being praised for his “remarkable assurance in executing wicked pyrotechnics … with extraordinary power and demonic furor” by The New York Times at his last Carnegie Hall engagement, he returns with a recital of Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Sonata, Schubert’s “Wanderer Fantasy," and works by Griffes and Chopin.
