Kirill Gerstein receives Gilmore Artist Award
Kirill Gerstein, who has appeared with the Oregon Symphony a couple of times (most recently in October) and with Portland Piano International (2004 season) has just been given the Gilmore Artist Award and chunk of cash, $300,000 actually. The New York Times has an excellent article on Gerstein and his latest achievement. I hope that we can get back to Oregon for another concert soon.
