Pianist Kevin Kenner Plays Chopin and Liszt
Monday, June 22, 2015
Pianist Kevin Kenner made his mark in the classical world in 1990, when he won prizes at the Chopin and Tchaikovsky Piano Competitions. In the late 1980s, he also won prizes at the Van Cliburn and Gina Bachauer Competitions. Since then, Kenner has had a career mostly in Europe, especially in Poland, his adopted home.
For his Concert From The Frick Collection, Kenner chose music by one of Poland’s favorite sons, Fredric Chopin, as well as a ballade by Franz Liszt.
