Remembered by the legendary Polish-American conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski as the author of the most sensitive and beautiful Chopin’s interpretations, Kevin’s new album features several Mazurkas, a Polish national dance and the Sonata No. 3.

In 1990, Kevin Kenner won the Chopin Competition and bronze medal in the Tchaikovsky Competition, which was the first time an American won prizes in both. Known for his interpretations of Chopin, having studied with Polish pianist Krzysztof Brzuza and in Poland with Ludwik Stefanski, then with Leon Fleischer at the Peabody. Legendary Polish-American conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski said Kenner’s Chopin interpretations are the most sensitive and beautiful he remembered. Recording features several Mazurkas, a Polish national dance.
