What a great event! I loved a whole program of Chopin and he was fabulous. A real treat and the audience was most receptive.

Superb artist with complete mastery of the instrument and the composer. I enjoyed every moment of the performance and also enjoyed speaking with Mr Ohlsson afterwards.

Magnificent concert. Ohlsson is a superb musician and is incapable of making a less-than-beautiful keyboard sound.
