The Keys to Kern

Reviews of pianist Olga Kern's work read like reviews of a rock concert. The words "ferocious" and "explosive" are used liberally. But Kern, a single mom from Moscow, isn't a rock star. She's a highly decorated classical musician and past winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition—which, in some circles, is even better. Olga Kern performs three concerts, at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. Tickets are $13 to $72.
