ROMAN KIM – I Brindisi for violin and string orchestra
The Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Robertas Šervenikas, a recipient of the Lithuanian National Prize, will collaborate with Roman Kim, a Tatar, Belarusian and Korean violinist born in Kazakhstan and residing in Germany.
Kim regularly appears in Spain, Israel, Italy, Russia, South Korea, Germany, performing in concert halls such as the Cologne Philharmonic and Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle. He has collaborated with the NDR and Moscow symphony orchestras, Halle’s Staatskapelle and other collectives. His performances are characterized by unexpected twists of interpretation, a new look at the traditional romantic repertoire. Perhaps the most inspiring composer for him is the legendary virtuoso Niccolò Paganini. In addition, Kim writes music and creates impressive arrangements for the solo violin. One of his most interesting compositions of recent years is the paraphrase I Brindisi (on themes from Verdi’s opera La traviata), which will be performed at this concert as well. Kim’s extravagant videos on YouTube attract thousands of viewers.
The concert will feature works by composers who were also virtuoso performers: J. S. Bach’s Concerto for violin and orchestra in D minor, BWV 1052R, Tartini’s Sonata The Devil’s Trill, Paganini’s Cantabile, Boccherini’s Symphony in B flat major, etc.
