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)
