Description

This is chamber music as it was meant to be heard: the communion of gifted artists in an intimate, beautiful setting, among music lovers and friends. After the performance, patrons can mingle with the performers, a lovely postscript to a perfect concert experience.

This engaging quartet, made up of world-class artists from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the U.S., performs a lively mix of Latin American, classical and romantic repertoire. Critics hail the ensemble’s verve as well as their musicality and precision, describing concerts that “alternately glimmered and blazed”(Philadelphia Inquirer).

 

Born into a family of musicians with direct links to Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, Olga Kern began studying piano at the age of five, and won the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at the age of seventeen. She went on to win a historic Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the first woman to do so in more than thirty years. She is now recognized as one of her generation’s great artists.
