“Call it star quality—music likes Kern the way the camera liked Garbo." - The Washington Post

"You can’t buy it, you can’t teach it. But Kern’s got it. And we can be thankful that there is an Olga Kern…to carry the great tradition she represents into the future." – D Magazine

"Kern's rendition of Chopin revealed not only her technical abilities but also an innate musicality." – Los Angeles Times

"Sheer talent does not come more transparently." - Gramophone
