All 700-odd seats in the Peabody Conservatory's Friedberg Hall were filled last night and people crowded the back in search of standing room.The reason was the first concert in the United States by pianist Kevin Kenner since he won second prize -- the highest awarded -- in Warsaw's Chopin Competition less than two weeks ago. Kenner is a Peabody graduate (he spent five years working with Leon Fleisher) and the 27-year-old pianist has been among the most successful of recent American competition contestants.

Kevin Kenner, the 1990 Chopin Piano Competition winner las weekend, already has enough concert and recording offers to keep him busy the next two years and he can finally kiss 10 years of "miserable" piano competitions goodbye.The 1989 Peabody Conservatory graduate who will appear in Baltimore Tuesday, Salisbury Nov. 29 and Frederick Dec. 1, has reaped this harvest since his Warsaw victory as top (though second-prize) winner:* After the 8:15 p.m. Peabody concert Tuesday at Friedberg Concert Hall, he leaves next week for seven recitals in 10 days in Germany.

Kevin Kenner feels most at home with Chopin. It's hard to say if Chopin would feel the same about Kenner. But 700 people at the Peabody Institute's sold-out Friedberg Concert Hall last night felt at home with both gentlemen and awarded both first-place applause.The 27-year-old Kenner played Chopin's "Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor" with the Peabody Symphony Orchestra instead of the earlier planned Mozart Concerto No. 20. It was the same deeply Romantic piece he had played in Warsaw two weeks ago in winning top honors -- but only second prize -- in the Chopin Piano Competition.

WARSAW, Poland -- Kevin Kenner, a Peabody Institute graduate, received the top prize awarded in the 12th international Frederic Chopin Piano Competition early today.But in an unprecedented decision, the jury of international musical luminaries decided no to award a first prize in the prestigious competition. Mr. Kenner, 27, was judged the best contestant and awarded the second prize.[The Associated Press reported that the decision to not award a first prize was apparently based on the belief that the competitors performed with technical skill but not genius.

He often pays the bills doing commercials. So Robert Kenner, director of Food, Inc., knew how to use snappy advertising graphics - the kind usually employed by giant food companies - to pull audiences into his scathingly enjoyable expose of Big Agra. Kenner placed the movie's opening credits on supermarket shelves, where typical logos present images from America's pastoral past to hawk products made on assembly lines. It's a sprightly, clever way for Kenner to announce, as he puts it, "It's OK to laugh: I want you to be entertained."

A scary movie that's also funny, touching and good for you - that's Robert Kenner's documentary about the American food industry, Food, Inc. In a decade when fiction filmmakers everywhere have been struggling to revamp conspiracy thrillers from the 1960s and 1970s (most recently German director Tom Tykwer in the Clive Owen-Naomi Watts vehicle The International), Kenner, best known for his work on PBS' American Experience, pulls it off with humor and humanity. Right from the brilliant opening credits, he treats the contemporary supermarket as a carnival fun house - brightly painted, cunningly designed, full of false signals and outright traps.

Kevin Kenner should never have to enter a piano competitio again.The 27-year-old Peabody-trained American won "only" second prize in the 12th international Frederic Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Poland, early yesterday. But no first prize was awarded, and that left Mr. Kenner the top prize winner in one of the two most prestigious piano contests in the world -- Moscow's Tchaikovsky Competition, in which Mr. Kenner won third place this summer, is the other.The Chopin finish also made him the only American to have emerged at the top of the heap in Warsaw since Garrick Ohlsson's historic victory there in 1970.
