Kim Carpenter – 4/25/15

“The evening’s highlight came with Camille Saint-Saëns’ ‘Violin Concerto No. 3 in B Minor,’ courtesy of an intensely thrilling performance by David Kim. Concertmaster for the Philadelphia Orchestra, he’s a favorite with Omaha Symphony audiences, and he played with precise technical command and a passion that was at times anguished, others tender and altogether beautiful to behold. It is demanding to play, and Kim dominated with dynamic articulations and artful flourishes that were by turns soft and dynamic.” —Kim Carpenter, Omaha World Herald
