“For our first concert of the New Year, we welcome the pianist Olga Stezhko. Born in Minsk, Olga was educated in Belarus, Italy and the UK where she completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees with distinction at the Royal Academy of Music under Prof. Ian Fountain. Her successes on the international competition circuit include the Grand Prix at the First ‘Halina Czerny-Stefanska In Memoriam’ International Piano Competition in Poland, First Prize at the Nikolai Rubinstein International Piano Competition in France and Third Prize at the Prix Amadèo de Piano International Piano Competition in Germany.
Olga’s specialism is early and mid-20th century repertoire and her highly interesting programme covers works by Poulenc, Debussy, Ravel and Scriabin.
