Garrick Ohlsson on Frederic Chopin

It’s the bicentennial year of composer Frederic Chopin, born in Poland in March of 1810. That makes this a very big year for pianist Garrick Ohlsson, who talked to WNYC’s Sara Fishko about Chopin’s music...for this edition of the Fishko Files. Garrick Ohlsson will play an all-Chopin concert this Wednesday night at Alice Tully Hall at 8. For additional information and Chopin extras, visit our website, http://culture.wnyc.org

It was a great pleasure hearing Sara Fishko's wonderful interview with Garrick Ohlsson. Garrick Ohlsson’s talents are many. Of course he is a truly great pianist. But he is also an intellect, seemingly on all things musical, and his insights when discussing composers are most enlightening. Despite the volumes of information available on Chopin, Garrick is still able to illustrate, through his playing and his words, fresh ideas and new ways of listening to this monumental composer. Well done Garrick!!

Best wishes, Marjan Kiepura
