Since his triumph as winner of the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition, Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of masterful interpretative and technical prowess. Although he has long been regarded as one of the world’s leading exponents of the music of Frédéric Chopin, Ohlsson commands an enormous repertoire. The two sonatas recorded on this album are the work of the young Johannes Brahms, and they perfectly complement the much later rhapsodies. These are magisterial accounts from a pianist noted for his mastery of the Romantics.
