Piano solo recital
Olga Kern, the striking Russian Gold Medal winner of the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano competition returns to New York with solo recital of works by Beethoven, Schumann and Rachmaninoff. With her vivid stage presence, passionately confident musicianship and extraordinary technique, this magnetic virtuoso performer continues to captivate fans and critics alike.
Now recognized as one of her generation’s great pianists, Olga Kern’s career began one decade ago with her award winning gold-medal performance at the Eleventh Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2001. Her second catapulting triumph came in New York City on May 4, 2004, with a highly acclaimed New York City recital debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall. In an unprecedented turn of events, Olga gave a second recital eight days later in Isaac Stern Auditorium at the invitation of Carnegie Hall.
