Garrick Ohlsson (piano)
Following acclaimed recordings of the complete variations and late piano works (the former prompting BBC Music Magazine to describe him as 'a born Brahmsian' and Gramophone to praise his ability to 'elevate and illuminate the music with a lightness of touch and heart that eludes many'), the American pianist turns his attention to the two early sonatas and the Rhapsodies from 1879.
Piano Sonata No. 1 in C major, Op. 1
Piano Sonata No. 2 in F sharp minor, Op. 2
2 Rhapsodies, Op. 79
