BIOGRAPHY

Jenny Soonjin Kim has performed in major venues in Europe, Asia, and North America and recorded keyboard works ranging from Bach to Schoenberg for Arabesque Records (which once nominated her for the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award) as well as the complete keyboard sonatas of both Leopold Kozeluch and Johann Friedrich Doles (a world premiere) on fortepiano for Brilliant Classics.  Sylvia Berry (Early Music America) wrote of the second Kozeluch volume: “Kim’s playing is crystalline and lyrical, with exquisitely sensitive phrasing. She is an assured virtuoso who interprets Kozeluch’s music beautifully.”  Marco Frei (Germany’s Piano News) wrote of the Doles recording“Once again the instrument convinces with an unheard-of floating tonal quality in piano and a voluminous expression in forte, and Kim knows how to use this fascinating richness of color perfectly… With this premiere recording Kim has taken an exemplary view, because it brings together the sound poetry and the gripping verve in a meaningful way.”  This past October, Kim performed Kozeluch’s first Piano Concerto in F Major with the Philharmony Hradec Králové at Smetana Hall in Prague.

She has a DMA in Historical Performance Practices/Keyboard Studies from Claremont Graduate University in California, where she now is an Assistant Professor of Practice, overseeing the piano/fortepiano program.  She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Join the National Chorale and National Chorale Orchestra, Everett McCorvey, Artistic Director, for a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 – Beethoven’s monumental choral symphony – with the triumphal “Ode to Joy” –  is the most powerful celebration of man’s freedom and faith ever written.  It captures our musical imagination as no other work in the repertory.  This will be partnered with his Choral Fantasy, Op. 80 – first performed on  December 22, 1808, written as a “brilliant Finale” that would unite in a single piece the different music elements  highlighted in the concert night:  piano, solo, chorus and orchestra.
