Neither Shy Nor Retiring: Garrick Ohlsson Plays On

CotterGarrickOhlsson_0.jpg

Pianist Garrick Ohlsson recently celebrated a landmark birthday, one that in the past might have qualified him for “golden years” status.  But as WRTI’s Jim Cotter reports, the one-time child prodigy continues to look forward.

This Sunday afternoon on WRTI, Garrick Ohlsson plays Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1 in concert with The Philadelphia Orchestra. The program, conducted by Yannick Nezet-Seguin, also features works by Richard Strauss.
