Brahms: Eight Pieces, Op. 76
Brahms: Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 21, No. 1
Brahms: Variations on a Hungarian Theme, Op. 21, No. 2
Brahms: Ballades, Op. 10
Brahms: Variations on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 35 (Bk I)
 
Acclaimed for interpretations that blend the “gossamer and the athletic” (New York Times), Garrick Ohlsson returns to dazzle us with some of the most impassioned music in the piano repertoire: Brahms’s variations. Experience this modern master as he demonstrates his extraordinary technique in the astonishingly difficult Paganini Variations while shining a light on lesser-known gems such as the Variations on an Original Theme.
