About Karin

Born in Buenos Aires, Karin Lechner is among the best piano teachers and performers of her generation. She visited us in Amsterdam to present the documentary ‘La calle de los pianistas‘, in which she starred, and delighted us with a live piano performance in our 2nd edition!

Karin received her first music lessons from her mother Lyl Tiempo in Caracas, Venezuela. She made her public debut at the age of five and recorded her first album at thirteen. She continued her training with Maria Curcio and Pierre Sancan and also benefited from regular advice by the some of best pianists in the world.

Karin Lechner today performs at the world’s most prestigious concert halls, in particular at the Royal Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, the Philharmonic Society of Berlin, the Téatro Colon of Buenos Aires, the Suntory Hall of Tokyo, and the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. She is also the guest at the greatest musical festivals, among them Salzburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Colmar, Menton, Verbier or Montpellier.
