Bartok Piano Concerto No.3
Seoul Philharmonic, Myung-Whun Chung
Monday 31 August 2009, Brussels Klara Festival, Brussels

By Pierre-Jean Tribot,

“The major discovery of this concert was the extraordinary young Korean pianist Sunwook Kim. In Bartok’s demanding Concerto No.3, he displayed an innate musical instinct which wove itself through the contrasting atmospheres of the score. His technique and the extensive range of his tone colours allowed him to grasp every single nuance in the score with poise and natural ease. For this Brussels debut, this young man made his mark with his thoughtful virtuosity and deserves the highest commendation.”
