The members of the Dali Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the United States and studied with world-renowned artists at Yale and Indiana Universities, Cleveland Institute of Music and Simon Bolivar Conservatory in Venezuela.

“beautifully prepared program… alternately glimmered and blazed” -The Philadelphia Inquirer

Russian-American pianist Olga Kern was the First Prize Winner of the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at age seventeen. Her Gold Medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Texas was historic, as she was the first woman to win in more than thirty years.  Olga Kern’s concert career spans the world with solo recitals, orchestra appearances and chamber music concerts in the great concert halls. She joins the Dali Quartet to perform Shostakovich’s masterpiece, the Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57.

“An absolute whiz at the piano.”  -The New York Times
