Krayterman Performs at guest piano recital

The Marshall University School of Music and Theatre welcomed pianist Olga Krayterman Friday for a guest recital.
Krayterman, graduate instructor at Eastman Community Music School, began the recital with a piece composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Krayterman played two pieces by Alexander Scriabin and after a brief intermission Krayterman ended the show with pieces from Bach, Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt.
Henning Vauth, coordinator of keyboard studies, invited Krayterman to perform at Marshall. Krayterman said she met Vauth at Eastman and they have continued to keet in touch.
Krayterman said she was not passionate about piano when she first began to play. She said growing up in Russia, most children played piano so it was usual for her to learn to play the instrument.
Krayterman won awards including the 2013 Young Artist Prize of National Federation of Music Clubs, first prize in the Concours International de Piano du Moulin d’Andé in France and the Jack L. Frank Award for Excellence in Teaching.
