On 14 August 2013 Sunwook Kim will make his BBC proms debut alongside the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits.

Sunwook will be performing Beethoven’s dramatic Piano Concerto No. 3 in a concert that also includes Tchaikovsky’s Third Symphony and Janáček’s Sinfonietta.

In an interview for the BBC Proms Digital Guide, Sunwook explains why the C Minor concerto has always been his favourite: “I am thrilled to be playing this work which contains great passion and ambition of young Beethoven.”

His feeling about making his debut is one of extreme excitement: “It was a marvellous experience going to the BBC Proms or watching them on TV every year and I have always dreamt of myself performing in such a wonderful music festival.”

You can read the full interview in the BBC Proms Digital Guide which can be purchased via iTunes.
