Details of Garrick Ohlsson and the Ticket Luck value
Garrick Ohlsson is an American classical pianist who has left his mark in the hearts and minds of people. At the young age of thirteen he began to attend The Julliard School, a performing arts school which trains students in music, dance and drama. Ohlsson’s musical development and style was affected greatly by the prominent teachers that mentored him while he was young and learning music, some of whom include Sascha Gordonitzki, Tom Lishman, Irma Wolpe, and Olga Barabini. His success has been possible because of his early musical development at the hands of his teachers who made him the master of classical piano that he is today. See and listen to this marvelous pianist play live by purchasing your Garrick Ohlsson tickets; you won’t be disappointed.
Accomplished pianists are difficult to come by in a world where classical music has largely fallen out of fashion with the younger generation. Hence it is people like Garrick Ohlsson who are left to bear the torch for fans of classical music in this day and age. Ohlsson has toured with a string quartet and collaborated with many others, and has performed with countless symphony orchestras. He also played for President Richard Nixon at the White House. From 2005 to 2006, Ohlsson toured with the Takács Quartet, whom he has also collaborated with. He has performed with symphony orchestras of Berkeley, Cincinnati, Houston, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Denver, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and many more.
Along with Michael Grebanier and Jorja Fleezanis who play cello and violin respectively, Ohlsson was one of the founders of FOG Trio in San Francisco, a group that meets about once a year to play. Funds raised from ticket sales go towards charity. Besides his large number of collaborations and philanthropist nature, Ohlsson is also known for having a rather large repertory – over eighty concertos – at his disposal. Another thing that he is known for is his special keyboard stretch.
Not only is Ohlsson an accomplished pianist, he has received his fair share of recognition as well. In 2008, Garrick Ohlsson won a Grammy Award for ‘Best Instrumental Soloist Performance’ for a Beethoven sonata he recorded which was part of a complete work of Beethoven sonatas. He was also the first American to receive a gold medal in the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, 1970, no doubt making his nation proud. After his triumph at Warsaw he played the works of Frédéric Chopin more often, going so far as to record all of Chopin’s work and release it on a set of discs later in his life. That’s not all. In 1966 Ohlsson was awarded first prize in the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition which took place in Bolzano, won the Montreal International Piano Competition and was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize in 1994. Four years later, he was awarded the ‘Distinguished Artist Award’ while in Michigan.
He has recorded with a multitude of labels including Arabesque Recordings, Angel Records, BMG, Hänssler Classic, Nonesuch Records, Hyperion Records, Telarc and many, many more. He’s made over a dozen tours to Poland after his win at the International Chopin Piano Competition and is still popular there. Ohlsson is known for his spectacular performances of the works of legendary composers, such as Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Prokofiev, Schubert and more yet still. While he may not make as many appearances in concert as he used to in the 1970s, his mastery over the piano and repertoire has only grown with time, so much so that music critics have become quite fond of him. The opportunity to witness legendary musicians such as Ohlsson perform their craft is rare. It is highly recommended that you get your hands on Garrick Ohlsson tickets as soon as possible before they sell out.
