Tanglewood Presents – Recitals from the World Stage: Garrick Ohlsson

August 19, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

$8

Recorded at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, San Francisco

Hosted by Karen Allen

Longtime BSO collaborator Garrick Ohlsson, who performed all 32 of Beethoven’s piano sonatas at Tanglewood in 2006, performs two of the series in a recital from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Beethoven dedicated his two-movement 1809 F-sharp sonata, Op. 78, to one of his students among the nobility, the Countess Therese von Brunsvik. At the other end of the spectrum from this lovely and brief two-movement sonata is composer’s most muscular and ambitious sonata, the four-movement Hammerklavier. Formally innovative and including a towering fugue in its last movement, the Hammerklavier is one of the defining works of Beethoven’s final decade.

Produced in partnership with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music
