Friends and musical collaborators Bridget Kibbey and Alexi Kenney make their return to the Phillips for an intimate and virtuosic collaboration. From adaptations of the music of John Dowland and J. S. Bach, to original masterworks by Camille Saint-Saëns and Sebastian Currier, their performance traverses three generations of musical counterpoint coupled with the rich harmonies of Romantic-era colorists. Kibbey, a longtime Phillips Music favorite, has brought new energy to the harp repertoire, premiering concertos by composers João Luiz Rezende and Vivian Fung, and making lively arrangements of the keyboard concerti by J. S. Bach, which she tours this season with the acclaimed Dover Quartet. Violinist Alexi Kenney is a musician on the rise who was named a “talent to watch” by The New York Times. Kenney has made chamber music a major focus in his career, regularly touring as a member of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
