  • Review | 2020 Cliburn Festival: Beethoven at 250, Concert 5 - March 24, 2020 – "At 26, Minnesota-born Broberg continues to prove himself one of the most intelligent and intense artists on the concert stage today; certainly, he brought new insight to a very familiar work, with a notably assertive contrast of volume levels in the first movement, an arresting aura of mystery in the second, and meticulously shaped phrasing and gorgeously fleet-fingered scale passages in the finale."
  • Review | 2020 Cliburn Festival: Beethoven at 250, Concert 3 - March 24, 2020 – "This brought us to To the Distant Beloved, Op. 98. Just seeing the name of the superb and locally based baritone David Grogan on the program assured us of a marvelous performance. And paired with the perceptive pianist Kenny Broberg, that is exactly what we got. I cannot remember a better performance that fully realized all of the mood changes in this widely varied work."
  • Review | 2020 Cliburn Festival: Beethoven at 250, Concert 1 - March 24, 2020 – "Wrapping up the program, Broberg offered a delicate expressiveness in the first, slow movement of the piano sonata, brought some brio when called for in the second, and demonstrated his ample technique in the third. In a world of heavy-handed pianists, Broberg delivers a welcome contrast of contemplative musicality."
  • Interview | Cliburn medal winner ready to face the challenges of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 with CVSO - March 7, 2020 – "Through his success, the 26-year-old Broberg is in a good position to give advice to other young musicians. In those situations, he said, he would point to his emphasis on the music rather than the success aspect of his path.

    “I think I did it the right way in that I wasn’t overwhelmed with the idea of building a career when I was too young,” he said. “I was just left alone to grow as a musician by myself and just learn to love this music. And I think that was important for me because it gave me the drive to know that was what I wanted to do as a career and it is something that I love. As a result, I think it comes from the right place.”
