“There’s a real warmth to her playing… A particular

strength is the variety of tone colors she displays… A

highly satisfying concerto collection all in excellently

recorded sound.”

- The Strad UK

“A consummate while never mindless technician, she

identifies the essential trait in each -whether Walton’s

modifying of the late-Romantic archetype, Hartmann’s

revitalising of the Baroque model or Bartók’s

harnessing of a Classical formal poise with a

modernist expressive range. Certainly, their emotional

as well as temporal similarities have rarely been made

so concrete as by Kim.”

-Gramophone

“The performance is so cohesive and played with such

conviction, one soon forgets other versions.”

– the classic review


Press

“A Brilliant Soloist” – New York Times

“[who] played with extraordinary precision and luminosity”

-New York Times

“glowed with deep interpretation. It was a great joy for the brilliant

soloist”

-Salzburger Nachrichten

“perfectly judged performances, with superb precision throughout.”

– BBC Magazine

“virtuoso vigor, technical bravura and great musical touch. Her

playing is marked by real passion, and Fabiola Kim inspires with her

fine phrasing and sculpturally transparent, yet warm, full-bodied

sound.”

-Nachrichten

“Kim is a first-rate musician… with great excitement from the first to

the last note.”

-Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger

“Enticingly singling and elegiacally thoughtful… [it] has seldom

been heard in a more expressive and profound way.”

– Fono Forum
