Garrick Ohlsson by Dario Acosta

Pianist Garrick Ohlsson —  long regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of the music of Chopin and noted for his masterly performances of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and the Romantic repertoire — has at his command more than 80 concertos, ranging from Haydn and Mozart to works of the 21st century. This season he performs concertos by composers ranging from Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Barber, and Busoni in cities including St. Louis, Washington (D.C.), Cincinnati, San Francisco, Portland (Oregon), Prague, Stockholm, Strasbourg, and Wrocław (Poland). He appears twice during the season with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, first playing two Prokofiev concertos in a weekend in which all five are programmed, and returning later in the season with Tchaikovsky’s Concerto No. 1. He gives recitals in New York’s Alice Tully Hall and in Seattle, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, and Puerto Rico. An avid chamber musician, Mr. Ohlsson has collaborated with the Cleveland, Emerson, and Tokyo string quartets, and this fall tours with the Takács Quartet. Together with violinist Jorja Fleezanis and cellist Michael Grebanier, he is a founding member of the San Francisco–based FOG Trio. Mr. Ohlsson can be heard on the Arabesque, RCA Victor Red Seal, Angel, BMG, Delos, Hänssler, Nonesuch, Telarc, Hyperion, and Virgin Classics labels. A native of White Plains, New York, Garrick Ohlsson began his piano studies at age eight at the Westchester Conservatory of Music, and entered The Juilliard School at thirteen. He has been awarded first prizes in the Busoni and Montreal Piano Competitions; the Gold Medal at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw (1970); the Avery Fisher Prize (1994); the University Musical Society Distinguished Artist Award in Ann Arbor, Michigan (1998); and the Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance from the Northwestern University Bienen School of Music (2014).
