Avery Fisher Career Grant-winning violinist Alexi Kenney performs E Major Partita by Bach, Crumb’s Four Nocturnes and more.
This October, Avery Fisher Career Grant–winning violinist Alexi Kenney returns to The Lensic for this season’s first concert recital. His selections range from the long-beloved E Major Partita by Bach—a technical showstopper for solo violin—to rarer works like Crumb’s Four Nocturnes, a delicate and birdlike meditation, featuring the subtle integration of many of Crumb’s inspired extended techniques, like having the soloist tap the violin as a percussive element. Kenney’s program also features more traditionally emotive works: Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major sets one of the composer’s most romantic art songs for solo violin and piano.
