When my colleagues and I have the opportunity to both interview and review an artist, it becomes interesting to see whether the ideas behind their program translate to the actual performance. Sometimes, from my perspective, they don’t, but the concert might still flourish in some other, unforeseen way.
And occasionally, everything comes together brilliantly, almost exactly the way the artist described. That was the case with Caroline Oltmanns’ online recital for the Tri-C Classical Piano Series on March 21, which she pre-recorded at home for the occasion.
