A native of Minneapolis, pianist Kenny Broberg won 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 continues to build a reputation for fresh interpretations, distinguished by a bright tone quality and a clean beauty in his sound.

He studied for nine years with Dr. Joseph Zins before entering the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music, where he earned a Bachelor of Music degree with Nancy Weems in 2016. He currently resides in Parkville, Missouri, under the guidance of 2001 Cliburn Gold Medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch at Park University. Alongside his teachers, he is influenced by the recordings of Alfred Cortot, William Kapell, and Claudio Arrau.

Program will include:

Bach: Prelude and Fugue in A-flat Major, BWV 862

Beethoven: Sonata No. 31 in A-flat Major, op. 110

Chopin: Fantaisie in f minor, op. 49

Franck/Bauer: Prélude, Fugue et Variation, op. 18

Medtner: Sonata in e minor, op. 25, no. 2, “Night Wind”

Mr. Broberg appears by arrangement with the Cliburn.
