VC Artist Bomsori Kim Signs with Deutsche Grammophon
The 31-year-old South Korean violinist has signed an exclusive multi-disc recording contract with the Deutsche Grammophon label
Bomsori’s debut solo album for the Yellow Label, "Violin on Stage," is set for international release in June. It features pieces originally written for or inspired by opera or ballet.
A graduate of The Juilliard School, where she studied with Sylvia Rosenberg and Ronald Copes, Bomsori is a former major prize winner at the Wieniawski, Montreal, Joseph Joachim, Tchaikovsky, Sendai, Sibelius, Qingdao and ARD International Violin Competitions.
“I feel truly honored to join Deutsche Grammophon and follow in the footsteps of so many legendary artists,” says Bomsori. “The Yellow Label stands for excellence and the best of tradition. It is also committed to reaching new audiences and connecting as many people as possible via the powerful emotions of great music. I share that commitment and want to communicate to the world through music. I hope my new album for DG will touch and inspire listeners of all ages.”
“It’s my great pleasure to welcome Bomsori to the Yellow Label,” comments Dr. Clemens Trautmann, President Deutsche Grammophon. “Her extraordinary virtuosity is matched by an ability to make the violin sing. We love the way she’s prepared to take risks in the moment of performance and the heartfelt poetry of her playing. Bomsori’s DG debut solo album is a tremendous showcase for her artistry and we look forward to creating many more recordings with her in the future.”
