Savannah Music Festival LIVE 325 – The One and Only Garrick Ohlsson

Original air date: week of October 3, 2010

Pianist Garrick Ohlsson is an interpreter of great originality, whose playing combines supreme elegance with extraordinary tonal projection. These qualities have placed him among the ranks of the world’s foremost pianists. On this edition of the Savannah Music Festival LIVE, we listen to Mr. Ohlsson playing a recital during the 2009 Savannah Music Festival at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts. He begins with the very first sonata written by Beethoven, composed in 1795 and dedicated to Joseph Haydn: the Piano Sonata in F Minor, Opus 2.
