Music Matters: Pianist Olga Vinokur

Olga Vinokur, 1886 Chickering concert grand 

The Heart & Soul of Russia

Scriabin Etudes, Preludes & a Sonata
Rachmaninoff Études TableauxMoments Musicaux
Prokofiev Sarcasms, Op. 17
Kreisler-Rachmaninoff Liebesleid

We often think of Russian pianism as being virtuosic. Russian Late Romantic music does require ferocious technical mastery, but the heart of this celebrated style is its deep lyricism. Among Russian performers gracing the American concert stage today, there is no more poetic a figure than Olga Vinokur. Her passionate commitment to the rich, subtle scores of Rachmaninoff, Medtner, and Scriabin is justifiably famous. She also brings a depth and finely chiseled intellect to early moderns like Prokofiev that takes your breath away. Join us for a rare pianistic and artistic encounter, a true revelation.
