Ken Turner is an New York-area writer and pianist who blogs about everything piano.
He is living the ongoing story of a man who took up the piano at age 63 and played at Carnegie 8 months later, see Ken Turner plays Bach Prelude No.1 in C Major, BWV 846. After 5 years, he still attends weekly piano lessons with his Julliard-trained tutor.
Ken is constantly exploring piano repertoire, going to piano recitals, and meeting piano lovers and pianists at every level. He reviews of many recitals that he attends.
These reviews are written from a lay perspective. They attempt to capture the personal experience of attending a recital rather than just critique the performance.
Ken loves to meet pianists, from professionals at the top of the international circuit to students and amateur performers like himself.
He is particularly supportive of up-and-coming pianists, modestly sponsoring his favorites on Patreon. He pays close attention to the searchability of his reviews in order to help deserving pianists gain exposure.
Ken blogs about most recitals that he attends, whether at a major venue such as Carnegie Hall, or in a private home. He also enjoys piano-based chamber groups and violinists. Feel free to invite him to your NYC/NJ area event!
