What’s Interesting About This Event
- This livestream was available free to 19/20 donors and ticket holders, May 24 through May 31, 2020.
- For the first time in California Symphony’s history, we present an online premiere featuring live recordings by violinist Alexi Kenney from his home in Palo Alto, plus interviews with Music Director Donato Cabrera in San Francisco.
- Audience favorite Alexi Kenney made his California Symphony debut in January 2018 performing the Bruch Violin Concerto No.1. He has earned wide-spread acclaim for his insightful and artistic interpretations, as well as his inspired programming, often melding the new with the old, the familiar with the obscure. A recipient of a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award and an Avery Fisher Career Grant, he was named “a talent to watch” by The New York Times.
