Chopin might be Garrick Ohlsson's destiny. In 1970, Ohlsson was the first American to win the International Frederic Chopin Piano Competition. He has recorded the complete Chopin piano works -- twice. Now, Ohlsson is celebrating Chopin's bicentennial as part of a Lincoln Center series. He talks about the celebrated "poet of the piano" and plays live in our studio.
