GARRICK OHLSSON 

Works by Brahms

Celebrated for his “tasteful virtuosity, elegant sense of proportion, and the balance between intimacy and declamation” (The New York Times), Garrick Ohlsson attained legendary status in 1970 when he became the first and only American to earn the Gold Medal in the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw. A musician of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess, he commands an enormously wide and eclectic repertoire that spans from Haydn and Mozart to works of the 21st century and includes over 80 concerti for piano and orchestra.

TIGRAN HAMASYAN, piano

With pianist/composer Tigran Hamasyan, potent jazz improvisation fuses with the rich folkloric heritage of Armenia. Winner of the top piano award at the 2013 Montreux Jazz Festival and the grand prize at the prestigious 2006 Thelonious Monk Jazz Piano Competition, “he’s the hottest pianist in jazz, and he likes to mix things up, whether it’s bebop, thrash metal, or dubstep. But his heart is in the folk music of his native land, Armenia” (The Guardian, London). The legendary Herbie Hancock extolled, “A-may-zing! Now, Tigran, you are my teacher!”

Co-sponsored with the Fresno State Armenian Studies Program and JazzFresno.
