Kim – “gold” in English – is a name sported by nearly 22% of people in Korea. But Bomsori is no less unique… and she absolutely lives up to her name! Born in Seoul in 1989, trained at the Juilliard School, winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the ARD in Munich, Queen Elisabeth in Brussels and Sibelius in Helsinki, she has already performed on the stages of the Musikverein in Vienna, the Berlin Philharmonic and Carnegie Hall in New York. She plays a magnificent Guadagnini built in 1774, placed at her disposal by the Kumho Asiana Cultural Foundation.
