For their latest album on Warner Classics, the Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Jacek Kaspszyk join forces with the outstanding young Korean violinist Bomsori Kim, winner of the Second Prize in the 2016 International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition. This exciting collaboration marks Kim’s recording debut, in which the fiendish virtuosity of Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 is coupled with Shostakovich’s searingly intense Violin Concerto No. 1. Although nearly 100 years apart, both concertos presented on this album had their premieres in Saint Petersburg.
