As one of the foremost Rachmaninov interpreters, Olga Kern shines in the exceptionally heart-wrenching Piano Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor Op. 36 (1931) recorded from the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Preliminary Round. Need we say more? Listen.
And as we gear up for Olga’s Portland appearance next week, we also found this new video just released!
Did you know Olga teaches at Manhattan School of Music? She recorded a short video providing interpretive advice on Rachmaninov for a master’s level student.
Hear Olga perform two programs with breathtaking artistry on OCT 6 / 7 in our season opening!
