Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Titanic American pianist, Garrick Ohlsson, presents an exceptionally personal album. The pianist writes: "Each of the five pieces on this recording is a work I have been closely associated with. Two were written for me and I've played all of them frequently. Music of our time always needs advocates; it needs live performance, but it also needs a way to exist for reference beyond the printed score. Each of these five composers has given me an inestimable gift. It's time for me to give thanks, in return." Mr. Ohlsson's virtuosic performances are accompanied by his very personal written commentary on the composers, their music, and their times.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
There becomes something that I need to hear. Lapis Lazuli also concentrates on the flute and adds piano accompaniment. The piece is more relaxed, with subtle flutter-tonguing and a more subdued, chromatic harmony. II ushers in more modern uses of string instruments. Extreme shifts in touch and dynamics, are astounding.
