“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


GTMF Encore – Spinning Wheel

Having just finished a whirlwind of performances at summer festivals this past week, this Grand Teton Music Festival encore performance of Olga’s seems appropriate – Spinning Wheel by Swiss composer Charles Lisberg. Enjoy!

Summer Music Festivals

Olga soon heads west for performances at not one, two, or three but four music festivals within a one week span! The first of these is Bear Valley Music Festival in California where she will be playing Rachmaninoff’s esteemed second piano concerto on July 28. She then heads to Grand Teton Music Festival, the International Keyboard Odyssiad and Festival, and Colorado Music Festival. Check her schedule here for more details.

Debussy’s Feux d’artifice
