Russian-American pianist Olga Kern jump-started her career with a Gold Medal at the 11th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the first woman to do so in more than 30 years! First-prize winner of the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at the age of 17, Kern’s return to the Lied features works by Rachmaninoff, Gershwin, Scriabin and Balakirev.

This presentation is made possible in part with generous support from the Anabeth Hormel Cox Lied Center Performance Fund and the Lied Center’s Piano Circle: John & Mary-Ann Clinton, Anabeth H. Cox, MarySue Harris, Charlotte Heermann, Mrs. Larry H. Lusk, Joan M. Reist and Diana H. Warner.
