KARL and MARGARET KOHN, pianists
in a program of music for two pianos
Margaret Kohn, born in Boston, began her musical training with Antoinette Doering, and worked later with Jesus Maria Sanroma and Jan Smeterlin. She graduated from Harvard where she had studied - as did Karl Kohn - with Irving Fine, Walter Piston, Randall Thompson, and Paul Hindemith. She teaches piano at Pomona College. Karl Kohn, born in Vienna, was educated in New York and at Harvard. He was a Fulbright Research Scholar in Helsinki, and has held fellowship grants from the Guggenheim, Howard, and Mellon Foundations, as well as four fellowship-grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. He taught several summers on the faculty of the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood. Since 1994 he is Professor of Music Emeritus at Pomona College.
Karl and Margaret Kohn began their musical partnership as undergraduates at Harvard. They have concertized in North America, Europe, and Japan, with performances and broadcasts dispersed from Mexico City and New York, to Helsinki, London, and Tokyo. The Kohns' repertoire includes most of the music composed for two pianos and for piano, four hands, with special emphasis on the music of the twentieth century.
