SOOYUN KIM, FLUTIST

A RARE VIRTUOSO OF THE FLUTE 

Libération

ABOUT SOOYUN

Praised as “A rare virtuoso of the Flute” by Libération, flutist Sooyun Kim has established herself as one of the rare flute soloists in the classical music scene.

Since her concerto debut with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra at age ten, she has enjoyed a flourishing career performing with orchestras around the world including the Bavarian Radio, Munich Philharmonic, Munich Chamber, and Boston Pops orchestras. She has been presented in recital series worldwide in Budapest’s Lizst Hall, Millennium Stage at Kennedy Center, Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and Kobe’s Bunka hall. Her European debut recital at the Louvre was streamed live on medici.tv which was immediately followed by a special invitation from the International Sejong Soloists for an encore recital in Seoul. This season’s highlights include orchestral appearances with Glacier Symphony, Kobe City Chamber, and Amadeus Festival orchestras performing concertos of Christopher Rouse, Mercadante, and Mozart. Also, as a member of Third Sound, she appears at the Havana Contemporary Music Festival in Cuba. A winner of the Georg Solti Foundation Career Grant, Ms. Kim has received numerous international awards and prizes including the third prize at the ARD International Flute Competition. An avid chamber musician, her summer appearances include the Music@Menlo, Spoleto USA, Yellow Barn, Rockport, Olympic, and Chamber Music Northwest festivals.

A former member of CMS Two, she studied at the New England Conservatory under tutelage of Paula Robison. Ms. Kim performs on Verne Q. Powell Flutes.

 

“KIM WAS A BEGUILING PRESENCE, WITH A WAY OF DANCING SLIGHTLY AS SHE PLAYED IN A FLAIR FOR A TOUCH OF THEATER. SHE OFFERED DEBUSSY’S ATMOSPHERIC “SYRINX” FOR SOLO FLUTE ON A DARKENED STAGE; IT HEIGHTENED THE MYSTERY OF THE MUSIC AND BROUGHT ATTENTION TO HER VIVID TONE COLORS.”

“Already as a ten year old girl, Sooyun Kim played Mozart’s Concerto in D in concert. She obviously seems to enjoy that the Münchener Kammerorchester adapts in a wonderfully flexible way to the soloist. The soloist playfully passes suggestions and dynamic variations to the leader and, above all, she lets the slow movement stream from complete tranquillity.”
