    Garrick Ohlsson

      Troy Chromatic Concerts will begin their 118th season this Sunday afternoon with a recital featuring pianist Garrick Ohlsson. The Berkshire Eagle praised his solo performance of works by Chopin at Tanglewood this summer for being “big, extroverted readings, full of narrative force and dazzling contrasts: sotto voce musings versus thundering chords, lyrical versus virtuosic [...]
