Rachmaninoff performed by Grammy award-winning pianist Garrick Ohlsson 

“Titan among Titans of the piano” (San Francisco Classical Voice), Grammy award-winning Garrick Ohlsson conquers Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto. Arguably the most demanding of all Romantic concertos, and equally electrifying, “Rach 3” is an immense challenge that will showcase Ohlsson’s stunning virtuosity. The conductor The New York Times calls “dazzling,” Juraj Valčuha leads the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Steven Stucky and Bartók’s exotic The Miraculous Mandarin.
