Happy 76th Bday to Garrick Ohlsson

Colossal pianist with a girthy sound to match.

Produced a complete Chopin works for piano set that is awesome all the way through.

The rest of his recorded output isn’t too shabby, either.

Yes, his Funerailles sounded this epic and imposing when I heard him live at Carniggah.


Garrick Olaf Ohlsson is an American classical pianist. In 1970 Ohlsson became the first, and remains the only, competitor from the United States to win the gold medal awarded by the International Chopin Piano Competition, at the VIII competition.
