Event website

The recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, violinist Alexi Kenney is hailed as “a talent to watch” by The New York Times, which also noted his “architect’s eye for structure and space and a tone that ranges from the achingly fragile to full-bodied robustness.” His win at the 2013 Concert Artists Guild Competition at 19 years old led to a critically acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut. His reputation continues to grow through lauded appearances with symphonies across the country, including Detroit, Columbus, California, Santa Fe, and the Las Vegas Philharmonic, as well as recitals at the Kennedy Center and the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Kenney is joined by pianist Renana Gutman, who’s blazed a trail across four continents with her “passionate and insightful playing” (The New York Times)
