Dana Oland – 3/12/17

“Next, Kim offered a truly virtuosic performance of the Tchaikovsky, receiving a standing ovation after the first movement. Kim played with a dynamic energy. His playing struck a balance between swimming with the orchestra and bursting forth. His solos soared with a mix of sultry sizzle, angelic high notes and powerful, graceful arpeggios that ranged from melancholy to playful. Had he been a rock guitarist, the audience would have been holding lighters aloft in the hall.” —Dana Oland, Idaho Statesman
