“The great American pianist Garrick Ohlsson took the stage for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5… playing with seemingly effortless precision, accuracy and control, no matter how fast and thick the notes came.
…Ohlsson also displayed a deft and sensitive touch with the concerto’s melodies. He played with pointed precision in the minor-key theme of the first movement and with frictionless fluency in the Adagio, bringing out the movement’s singing quality while leaning hard into the tension that preceded the sunburst of the concluding Rondo.”
