One of the things Keyboard Concerts does so well is bringing in younger pianists who have recently triumphed at some of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world.

That is definitely the case with this next concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Fresno State Concert Hall.

“Our series is extremely excited and privileged to be able to present Kenny Broberg, a recent prize winner of the two most prestigious international piano competitions in the world, the Tchaikovsky in Moscow and the Cliburn in Fort Worth,” says Andreas Werz, artistic director of the Philip Lorenz International Keyboard Concerts series.

From his website: The Minneapolis native first came to international attention when he captured the silver medal at the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition with performances marked by “an imaginative shaping of themes, revelation of inner voices, and an unfailing sense of momentum” (Texas Classical Review). He followed this with a bronze medal win at the 2019 International Tchaikovsky Competition, adding to his numerous competition prizes at the Hastings, Sydney, Seattle, and New Orleans International Piano competitions.

Kenny has appeared with the Royal Philharmonic, Minnesota, Sydney Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, and the Louisiana Philharmonic orchestras, among others

His program includes works by J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Franck and Medtner.
