Siwoo Kim is an “incisive” and “compelling” (The New York Times) violinist who plays with “stylistic sensitivity and generous tonal nuance” (Chicago Tribune). Siwoo performs as soloist and chamber musician, and he is the founding co-artistic director of VIVO Music Festival in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Siwoo gave the world premiere of Samuel Adler’s violin concerto. He recorded the work on Linn Records to commemorate the composer’s 90th birthday this season and BBC noted his “impassioned playing.” Siwoo gave his New York concerto debut at Carnegie Hall (Stern Auditorium) with the Juilliard Orchestra. As a chamber musician, Siwoo formed the “whip-smart” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker) Quartet Senza Misura and spends his summers at the Marlboro Music Festival.
