Olga Kern is . . . a magnetic performer with one of the most prodigious piano techniques of any young pianist. This season, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Van Cliburn Foundation will honor Ms. Kern’s Cliburn victory 10 years ago with a co-presentation of her talents in March and April of 2011.
Also this season, Olga will perform with the symphonies of Detroit, Anchorage, Nashville, Dallas, Virginia, St. Louis, Rochester, Pittsburgh, Madison, Johnson City, Syracuse and Colorado. She has also been invited to perform at Longwood Gardens, the Sanibel Music Festival, the Winter Park Bach Festival, the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and Drake University. In January 2012 Olga will perform during a special North American recital tour with conductor Vladimir Spivakov, their first outside of Europe.
Ms. Kern records exclusively with Harmonia Mundi, and her highly anticipated Chopin Sonatas CD was recently released in 2010.
