WQXR – Thursday: New York In Concert With Pianist Garrick Ohlsson & Vienna Piano Trio23 Apr 2020

Visit WQXR to listen to this feature.

In our third episode of “New York in Concert”, we bring you performances from two concerts from the 92nd Street Y, a nonprofit community and cultural center serving New York City since 1874.

First, pianist Garrick Ohlsson brings his mastery of Beethoven and Chopin to the stage in an empty Kaufmann Hall. This concert took place on March 14th, after social distancing had already taken effect in New York, and it was offered as a live webcast to a large and appreciative audience around the world. This program also includes the Vienna Piano Trio’s performance of the Beethoven “Archduke” trio, recorded live as part of their debut performance in Kaufmann Hall this past February.
