Acclaim

“The solo violin — here played with fierce dramatic commitment by Bomsori Kim — takes on a shamanistic role.”

New York Times

“One of the eminent young, rising stars of the international concert stage.”

Violin Channel

“'Bomsori' means 'the sound of spring' in Korean, and violinist Bomsori Kim’s sound is like spring - fresh, clarion, and nuanced. Her expressiveness and obvious pleasure in engaging with audiences is substantial...The pulse and arc of each of her phrases was exquisitely shaped. If one weren’t already in love with the violin, this concert would have been the heart-winning valentine. ”

Classical Sonoma

“Bomsori Kim makes her debut on record with the [Wieniawski Concerto]. It’s an intelligent choice for a technically well-schooled musician who draws unfailingly ample tone from a 1774 Guadagnini. Aided by finely moulded conducting from Kaspszyk, she uses a vibrato quivering with youthful ardour and a lovely, supple bow to point out the concerto’s Mendelssohnian heritage. There are more beautifully varied left-hand colours in the central Romanze, and a rhythmically secure discipline to the finale pays dividends in bringing palpable tension and finally relief to all the pyrotechnics: I can’t remember when I last enjoyed this concerto so much.”

The Strad

"Phrases came out like the warm spring air we’ve been missing. Perfection in runs and excellent pitching in the highest registers were world-class. As the final movement evoked its dance-like atmosphere, both Kim
and conductor swayed to the music together,rendering exquisite music."

Lincoln Journal Star

“Her playing has the technical facility you would expect, and she goes beyond expectations in several respects. Kim's Wieniawski Violin Concerto No. 2 is an especially fiery one that doesn't rely just on local effects, but sustains the lines of the work, the gravity that the great Polish violinist must have had in his own performances.”

AllMusic

“Bomsori Kim’s entry picks up the mood with centred tone and a strong rhythmic thrust.”

BBC Music Magazine

"I couldn’t help but be impressed by the violinist’s sensuous position changes and pristine intonation... It is a performance of sensitively graded emotions, acute dynamic range and inspired rhythmic flow. It certainly doesn’t get any better than this."
