Spirit of the Sea
Ohlsson Plays Brahms
Fri & Sat 8PM
Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall
Autograph session with Garrick Ohlsson on 18 May will be arranged after the concert.
Peter Grimes –Four Sea Interludes
Piano Concerto No.1
Grammy Award winner and the first American ever to win the Chopin International Piano Competition, Garrick Ohlsson is said to be “A pianist completely consumed in musical life”. He is also a giant at the keyboard, so Brahms’ equally massive First Piano Concerto should hold no terrors for him.
We head off to the seaside for the other works in this concert, with Britten evoking the bleak and desolate sea off the coast of his native East Anglia while Debussy conjures up images of the sea in all its moods and colours.
"...Austrian conductor Johannes Wildner brought a sense of measured precision mixed with undoubted reliability to his interpretation." Music OMH
"He (Ohlsson) is a born Brahmsian." BBC Music Magazine
