with host Fred Child

: Garrick Ohlsson plays Chopin

Garrick Ohlsson Kacper Pemple

Pianist Garrick Ohlsson feels that Frederic Chopin was a brilliant intellect, but he thinks Chopin's music is more about visceral feeling than intellectual understanding. On Thursday's Performance Today, hear Ohlsson perform a Chopin scherzo from a concert in Fort Worth, Texas.
