Latvian pianist Olga Jegunova makes every performance fresh and compelling. She possesses a remarkable musical imagination combined with a seriousness of purpose and discipline. Her repertoire ranges from Bach to Schnittke, Scarlatti to Bartok and includes much contemporary repertoire, not least some new works composed especially for her.
Olga has gained an enviable reputation as soloist and recitalist, not least winning many major international piano competitions. These include the Ginette Gaubert competition in Paris and the Steinway-Förderpreis in Hamburg. She has been a prize-winner at the Maryse Cheilan competition in France, the Stasys Vainiunas competition in Vilnius, the Animato competition in Zurich, and was a semi-finalist at the prestigious Geza Anda Concours in Zurich. Olga regularly performs at festivals across Europe.
In December 2015 Olga launched a charity called OlgaRhythm to support talented music students of all ages.
