Notes & Reviews:

Garrick Ohlsson has an unbeaten reputation as the master of the miniature. In this new recital he presents three sets of Études: the twelve by Claude Debussy (so ferocious in their demands they were shunned even by elite pianists for decades), Prokofiev's revolutionary Études of Op.2 and a set of three lesser-known works by Bartók.

The Guardian, 23rd July 2015
His powerful technique motors through Prokofiev's four miniatures with tremendous confidence, relishing their naughty-boy dissonances, and he treats the Lisztian flourishes that occasionally surface in the modernist currents of Bart=k's three pieces with suitable flamboyance. There are some fine moments in the Debussy set, too.
