VC ARTIST | Alexi Kenney — "Piercing Insight and a Masterful Sense of Voicing"
American violinist, Alexi Kenney, is praised by critics for his musical flexibility, personal style, and insightful and artistic interpretations
A graduate of the New England Conservatory, where he studied with Miriam Fried and Donald Weilerstein, Alexi was awarded a 2020 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and a prestigious 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant. He is a former prize winner at the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition and the 2012 Menuhin Competition. Alexi is a member of The Bowers Program at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
In April 2021, Alexi is releasing his first recording, Paul Wiancko’s X Suite for Solo Violin, accompanied by a visual album that pairs each of the seven movements of X Suite with seven contemporary sculptures from the Donum Estate in Sonoma, California.
His recent solo engagements include performances with the Detroit Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony, Sarasota Orchestra, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, and in a play-conduct role as guest leader of both the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony.
