Garrick Ohlsson

Garrick Ohlsson

Since his triumph as the first and only American to win the Chopin International Piano Competition, Garrick Ohlsson has received accolades for his dazzling technique, spellbinding fluidity, and sheer beauty of tone. He performs regularly with the world’s greatest orchestras, and is in high demand as a recitalist and chamber musician.

“The unfailingly beautiful tonal variety was very special, and his exploratory approach made it sound as if the music were being composed under his fingers.”
– Washington Post
