Ohlsson: Schubert, Liszt, Misson & Scriabin
Sat 3 June @ 19:00 - 20:40$58 – $158
In 1970 Garrick Ohlsson won the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the only American to have done so. In the subsequent 50 years Ohlsson has owned Chopin’s music like few others, playing it with authority, humility, a sense of discovery and deep commitment.
Ohlsson has other heroes too. Scriabin is one such example, his powerful, impressionistic music an ideal match for Ohlsson’s authoritative playing. He adores Barber and Schubert, Debussy and Liszt too, choosing this Australian tour for his first performance of the latter’s Sonata in B Minor in many years. His program also features a new work by the Australian composer Thomas Misson.
