Discover the depth of Brahms’ writing for piano under the hands of Garrick Ohlsson, a pianist of great elegance and prodigious.

Pianist Garrick Ohlsson is recognized worldwide as a pianist of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess. Although long regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of the music of Chopin, he commands an enormous repertoire spanning the entire piano literature, and has come to be noted for his masterful performances of works by Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, as well as a great many works from the Romantic repertoire. This season, Ohlsson embarks on an ambitious two-season-long project to explore the complete works for solo piano by Brahms, spread out over four different programs. The cycle will be performed in New York, San Francisco, and Montreal, with individual concerts given in London, Warsaw, and various cities across North America. An avid chamber musician, Garrick Ohlsson has collaborated with the Cleveland, Emerson, and Tokyo string quartets, and in the spring will be touring with the Takács Quartet and the Boston Chamber Players in Istanbul, Berlin, Munich, Warsaw, Luxembourg, and Prague.
