Up-and-coming pianist opens concert series

Critic's Choice: Classical Music

September 30, 2001|By Tim Smith

Kevin Kenner, a Peabody Conservatory grad who studied with Leon Fleisher, perked up ears at the world's leading piano competitions in 1989 and '90, winning high honors at the Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Poland, and the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. The California native went on to establish a home base in London; his career has been most active abroad.

Kenner returns to Baltimore for a recital this afternoon to launch the annual Community Concerts at Second, formerly known as Second Presbyterian Concert Series. The program will be devoted to two composers: Chopin (a Kenner specialty) and Ravel.

The recital is at 3:30 p.m. at the Second Presbyterian Church, 4200 St. Paul St. Admission is free.
