Notes & Reviews:

Bridge Records is proud to announce the signing of Garrick Ohlsson for a series of recordings to be released in 2006. Bridge's first Ohlsson recording is J.S. Bach's 'Goldberg Variations,' coupled with Handel's Suite No. 2 in F major. Bach's 'Goldberg Variations' is widely regarded as the most ambitious and monumental harpsichord composition of the baroque. In this brilliant reading Garrick Ohlsson performs the work without repeats, giving us the genius of Bach's invention with unflagging momentum without slighting the poignantly introspective side of Bach's singular masterpiece. Garrick Ohlsson is regarded as one of the great virtuosi currently performing on the international concert circuit.
