On the rise: Alexi Ken­ney

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

This March, vi­o­lin­ist Alexi Ken­ney was one of six mu­si­cians to be awarded a 2016 Avery Fisher Ca­reer Grant, a nice feather in the cap of any clas­si­cal per­former on the rise. Ken­ney made a firm im­pres­sion when he ap­peared with the Santa Fe Sym­phony as a soloist last sea­son, and now he re­turns to lead a small en­sem­ble from the or­ches­tra in Vi­valdi’s peren­ni­ally pop­u­lar group of con­cer­tos known as The Four Sea­sons. Also on this pro­gram of cham­ber-scaled works is Bach’s Dou­ble Con­certo for Vi­o­lin and Oboe (in which Ken­ney is joined by oboist Elaine Helt­man) and Mozart’s ge­nial Diver­ti­mento in D ma­jor, K.136/125a. The con­cert takes place at 7 p.m. on Sun­day, April 10, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St). Tick­ets ($23-$80) can be ar­ranged di­rectly through the Sym­phony (505-983-1414) or through the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org). — J.M.K.
