About

Bridge Records is pleased to be releasing Volume 3 of Garrick Ohlsson's Beethoven Sonata cycle, as part of its new Garrick Ohlsson Edition. Beethoven Sonatas, Vol. 3 includes Ohlssonís readings of four sonatas. 
 
Beethoven astonished the music world with his early set of three Piano Sonatas, Op. 2. Though clearly 'early Beethoven', the C major sonata is a thoroughly mature masterpiece. The relatively short, and highly lyrical Op. 14, No. 1 sonata is an adventurous piece, a work with more than a touch of latent Romanticism. And its companion, Op. 14, No. 2 explores many new avenues of rhythmic development. The Op. 79 Sonata belongs to the group of sonatas where Beethoven was composing with extreme concision. Garrick Ohlssonís readings of these four sonatas are full of the virtuosity and passion that have marked his recent live performances of these works. 
 
Garrick Ohlsson is widely regarded as one of the great virtuosi currently performing on the international concert stage. With an active repertoire of more than 80 concertos, a full schedule of solo recitals and chamber music engagements, Mr. Ohlsson's brilliant music making has graced the world's concert halls ever since he won the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition.
