Garrick Ohlsson returns to the US
On September 9, Garrick Ohlsson stars at the Season Opening Weekend of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, performing Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto, a work full of magnificent flourishes with smashing chords, and regal bearing from one of the all-time greatest composers. Also on the program that evening is Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, which might be the most famous symphony in the world. Its deceptively simple four-note opening was once compared to fate knocking at the door by the composer himself. Those famous first four notes will blow the door off Symphony Hall as the Orchestra launches its 77th Season.
He goes on to California on September 10, to play a recital at CSU Fresno.
