About This Performance

No less an authority than Jaime Laredo says that Hye-Jin Kim has “the most pure and beautiful sound I have heard on a violin.” Yet the beauty of her playing goes beyond technique, revealing, in the words of Mitsuko Uchida, “a total sincerity and honesty. You hear the beauty of her heart.” Winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, the Seoul-born violinist will display her rare sensitivity and intellect in a PCMS debut program that showcases her “utterly sublime” facility with Bach (Helsinki Daily).
