Reviews of Garrick Ohlsson and the Takács Quartet have a few things in common. One of them is universal praise. Critics wear out their thesauri looking for new superlatives: “stunning,” “matchless,” “unforgettable,” “superb” have all been tossed like bouquets. So look, Orlando: We’re putting you on blast. When not one internationally renowned artist but five of them appear in our city, please don’t blow it off. Another thing reviewers seem to agree on is the “muscular grace” or “pungent earthiness” of their performances – in other words, Ohlsson and the Takács are not airy-fairy or frou-frou. Whether you’re a confirmed classical buff or a noob, this concert comprising works by Schubert (sweet, haunting), Ravel (rhythmically complex, sexy) and Shostakovich (fervent, relentless) is a safe bet for greatness. – Jessica Bryce Young
