Gold medalist at the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition (the first woman to win in 30 years), Russian-born pianist Olga Kern, in her Gilmore debut, will present a program of works by Rachmaninoff, Schumann, and Gershwin, among others. Kern’s fiery passion is balanced with elegance in the grandeur of Russia’s musical tradition. She won first prize at the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at age 17, and since has become known for her technical brilliance and emotional depth. She is Artistic Director of the Olga Kern International Piano Competition, and has served on the piano faculty of the Manhattan School of Music.
