Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Garrick Ohlsson's latest recording for Bridge combines new studio recordings of major compositions by Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff with one of the great American pianist's own favorite "live" performance- a 1974 unedited reading of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, given in Prague. Ohlsson was 26 and had just become the "young lion" of Prague, where, over the years, he has achieved great popularity, playing more than 60 times. Garrick Ohlsson's recent recordings for Bridge include Scriabin: The Complete Etudes (BRIDGE 9287), and his Grammy-winning Beethoven Sonata disc (BRIDGE 9207), a part of his complete Beethoven Sonata cycle.

"Garrick Ohlsson demonstrates strong credentials as an interpreter of Russian music in this impressive recital. He brings a tremendous variety of colour to Rachmaninov's Corelli Variations, drawing out different strands of the polyphonic texture and controlling the work's overall architecture with impeccable pacing... Whereas the Rachmaninov and Prokofiev are recent recordings captured in rich digital sound, the Musorgsky is taken from a recital in Prague's Rudolfinum in May 1974. The engineers have managed to tame the resonant acoustics of the hall, but I wonder whether the microphones were placed just a little too close to the hammers of the keyboard... Mind you, one can also understand why Ohlsson approved the release of this performance, for the execution and articulation in 'The Unhatched Chickens' and 'The Market Place at Limoges' are breathtaking, and the playing as a whole conveys a level of excitement that would be difficult to replicate in the recording studio." -BBC Music Magazine (*****)
