     A Grammy Award winner for his recording of the Beethoven sonatas, pianist Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess. A student of the late Claudio Arrau, Ohlsson has come to be noted for his masterly performances of the works of Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, as well as the Romantic repertoire. Even though he was first prize winner of the 1966 Busoni Competition in Italy and the 1968 Montréal Piano Competition, it was his 1970 triumph at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, where he won the Gold Medal (and remains the single American to have done so), that brought him worldwide recognition as one of the finest pianists of his generation.

     

    “This was pianism technically clear and confident, and unafraid to turn the finale of the “Appassionata” (Beethoven) into a calculated frenzy.”  New York Times
