Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here is Part I of our interview with 1970 Chopin competition winnner, Garrick Ohlsson. In this section, the pianist talks mainly about the piece that he recently performed with the SF Symphony, Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9.
He does give a fair opinion about Lang Lang as well.

As always, thank you for reading smile

Also, what’s similar is the fact that they both described rubato in the same way, which is a way nobody I know can actually do.


Interesting. I guess he's talking about how, supposedly, Chopin said that the rubato should apply to the melody with a steady accompianment underneath. Of course, many pianists could do this if they tried and practiced. Perhaps it means it just doesn't sound any good. He talks about how pop has it though ...
