THROWBACK THURSDAY | VC Artist Bomsori Kim Performs Waxman Carmen Fantasy in 2015
Watch the South Korean violin virtuoso performing in the semi-final round of the 2015 Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition with pianist Daniel Blumenthal
"I always think that instruments, especially the violin, should be trying to sing like the human voice — while dance should be about the pulse of our heartbeat," Bomsori told the Violin Channel. "These two elements cannot be neglected or separated and are the most essential components in music for me."
An Artist Diploma graduate of The Juilliard School, where she studied with Sylvia Rosenberg and Ronald Copes, Bomsori is a former major prize winner at the Wieniawski, Montreal, Joseph Joachim, Tchaikovsky, Sendai, Sibelius, Qingdao and ARD International Violin Competitions.
Bomsori currently performs on a 1774 Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin, on generous loan from the Kumho Instrument Bank.
