Graduation Recital: Haram Kim, violin (Now Available)

The centerpiece of violinist Haram Kim’s recital is Sergey Prokofiev’s melancholy Violin Sonata No. 1, written under the iron-fisted regime of Joseph Stalin. The work reflects the devastation of World War II in music its composer compared to “autumn evening wind blowing across a neglected cemetery grave.” The recital continues with a technically demanding sonata by Eugène Ysaÿe dedicated to Fritz Kreisler, one of the 20th century’s most celebrated violinists; and concludes with a popular tune penned by Kreisler himself.
