Musique en Sol : Sunwook Kim au sommet

http://www.sudouest.fr/2016/08/16/sunwook-kim-au-sommet-2468560-1977.php

Sunwook Kim n’a pas déçu les mélomanes, qui l’avaient découvert en 2014 à l’abbatiale. Ce pianiste d’exception est revenu mardi dernier au festival Musique en Sol, dont Bernard Hautefort rappelait « le caractère de qualité, d’élégance et de partage », depuis vingt-cinq années déjà.

Ce vendredi 18 novembre 2016, dans le cadre du cycle Beethoven, Tugan Sokhiev et l’Orchestre National du Capitole étaient à la Philharmonie pour un programme riche qui commençait par une création de Hugues Dufourt, se poursuivait par le triple concertos avec le violoncelliste Istvan Vardai, le violoniste Guy Braunstein et le pianiste Sunwook Kim pour se terminer sur la dernière symphonie de Brahms.

25 June 2014, Recital in Stationer’s Hall, London – City of London Festival

http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/jun/26/sunwook-kim-review-stationers-hall-london

 

“The swell of suspended harmonies was perfectly controlled, the chords perfectly struck and voiced, and Kim always kept the sense of restless searching at just the right level of intensity”

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits

By George Hall, The Guardian

“… the finale benefited from his energetic attack and immaculate fingerwork, while some historically informed touches gave individuality to Karabits’s astute management of the orchestral accompaniment.”

Sunwook Kim, meilleur impressionniste que romantique

est encore jeune, mais son prestige ne cesse de croître. Tout auréolé de sa victoire au concours de Leeds, il gravit une à une les marches de la célébrité : après des apparitions remarquées à la salle Pleyel, comme partenaire de musique de chambre, il a prouvé qu’il excellait dans les concertos, et se produit désormais en récital à travers le monde.

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4 
Philharmonia Orchestra, Juraj Valčuha

http://www.classicalsource.com/

“His playing here of Beethoven was intelligent and probing, crisp and considered, always respectful but displaying much character, the recesses of the music not overlooked and he balanced ideally strength with poeticism.”

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits

By Neil Fisher, The Times

“Kim repaid the investment by allowing every voice in this concerto to speak, shirking grand gestures and playing with absorbing concentration and nuance.”

Sunwook Kim performs piano works by Franck and Brahms

http://www.classical-music.com/review/sunwook-kim-performs-piano-works-franck-and-brahms

Sunwook Kim brings some splendid pianism and conceptual thinking to both works: a full-toned touch and resonant atmosphere connects the Prélude, Choral et Fugue strongly to Franck’s organ works.

Concert with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra at Portsmouth Guildhall

http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/whats-on/gigs-and-music/review-bournemouth-symphony-orchestra-at-portsmouth-guildhall-1-7616215

Sunwook Kim was a masterly, musicianly soloist in Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto. No empty crash-bang-wallop from him but an ability to shift from fantasy to fireworks and back in a gasp.

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits

Bachtrack.com

“Kim placed pianissimos always on the edge of disappearance so that the audience almost had to strain to hear; the effect was spellbinding, particularly in the simple but shattering cadenzas of the second movement.”

Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits

By John Packwood, The Bristol Post

“The finale skips along at great speed and at times the soloist was getting so engrossed in the music that he rose from the stool. This was an incredibly mature performance worthy of the tremendous ovation.”
