Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits
Wednesday 19 January 2011, Lighthouse, Poole

By Mike Marsh, Bournemouth Echo

“Intuative musicianship from pianist Sunwook Kim in Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2 filled every bar with an extraordinary sense of lyricism.

If the first movement spoke of earthly beauty, then the Larghetto was surely heaven-sent; angelic in phrase and feeling and conveyed with the most sensitive and sensuous fingerwork.

Even the final Allegro’s mazurka was touched with an uncommon poetic aura and all under the sympathetic accompaniment of Kirill Karabits.”
