Every chord, arpeggio and trill from pianist Garrick Ohlsson’s fingers exudes total confidence. That’s why his Omaha Symphony audience Friday night rose as one in awed acclaim.
His performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 — itself the source material for movie scores and hit popular songs — resembled a intricately woven tapestry of sound. Those who hear tonight’s 7:30 p.m. finale at the Holland Performing Arts Center can expect an effortless lyricism honed over a half-century of concertizing.
