Ohlsson’s Etudes

  Debussy, Bartók and Prokofiev:

Garrick Ohlsson has an amazing reputation as the master of the miniature.

In this new recital he presents three sets of Études:

The twelve Etudes by Claude Debussy (so ferocious in their demands they were shunned even by elite pianists for decades), as well as Prokofiev’s revolutionary opus 2, and a set of three lesser-known works by Bartók.

In all of these, Ohlsson provides much pleasure. The complete titles are as follows:


  • 3 Studies, BB 81, Sz. 72, Op. 18


  • Études pour piano (12) (complete)


  • Four Etudes, Op. 2

Performed by Garrick Ohlsson (piano)
