A Seattle favorite returns to Meany Center. In the four decades since his legendary win at the International Chopin Competition, Garrick Ohlsson has blazed a clear path as one of the greatest pianists of our time. Praised both for his virtuosic firepower and subtle interpretations, Ohlsson’s program highlights his well-earned reputation for bringing beloved masterworks to life.
What a sound! ...no flailing or thumping or grandstanding, just an incredible technique with razor-sharp accuracy, producing a sound so lush it almost glistens.
