One of the most sought-after pianists performing today, Olga Kern’s star power is only exceeded by her extraordinary musical gifts. Her headline-making wins at the great piano competitions sealed her fate, from her triumphant First Prize at the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at the age of seventeen, to her Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition — the first woman to take that prize in more than thirty years. Mark this performance down as one of the must-hear musical moments of the Festival. “Her electricity at the keyboard is palpable, as though she generates from the music itself, as it flows through her fingers it takes on fresh voltage that is unmistakably hers” (The Washington Post).
