Hailed by the New York Times as “a brilliant soloist,” Fabiola Kim is one of the most dynamic players of her generation. She is the winner of various awards and competitions, including the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra’s Concerto Competition as the youngest competitor in the history of the competition to win. Kim will be performing Bach’s Partita No. 3 for Solo Violin, BWV 1006; Beethoven’s Sonata for Piano and Violin No. 7 in C Minor; Ysaÿe’s Sonata No. 2 for Solo Violin, Op. 27; and Prokofiev’s Sonata for Violin and Piano No.2 in D Major, Op. 94a.

Kim plays a wide variety of repertoire from classical to contemporary music. Her recent engagements include a debut at Berlin Philharmonie performing with the Berlin Symphoniker and recording of Sibelius and Barber Concertos with the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Christian Reif, which will be released later in the year. Kim’s concerts have taken her all across the globe, as she has performed throughout North America, Mexico, Europe, Japan, and South Korea, performing at such prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Avery Fischer and Alice Tully at Lincoln Center, the Seoul and Kumho Arts Centers, the Kimmel Center, the Church of St. Martins in the Fields, and the Auditorium Conciliazione.

After beginning her studies at the age of four, she made her concerto debut with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra just three years later. Kim earned her bachelor and master of music degrees at the Juilliard School under the tutelage of Sylvia Rosenberg and Ronald Copes. Her former teachers and mentors include Kyung Wha Chung, Namyun Kim and Choongjin Chang. She is now an Artist Diploma candidate at the Colburn School with Robert Lipsett.

In collaboration with the Colburn School in Los Angeles, this new chamber music series features outstanding young soloists and ensembles, specially chosen by the Colburn faculty for their artistry and professional potential.
