Alexi Kenney, violin
with Renana Gutman, piano

Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 4pm


The recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, violinist Alexi Kenney has been named "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 the age of nineteen led to a critically acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut recital at Weill Hall. 

He will partner with very talented Renana Gutman, winner of multiple piano competitions, in a program to include works by JS Bach, Crumb, Schubert, Solonen, and a beautiful Violin Sonata by Ottorino Respighi.
