Kim, Yun

Kim, Yun

Violinist Yun Kim began her studies at prestigious preparatory institutions such as Yewon School and Seoul Arts High School in her hometown, Seoul, Korea. And she continued education on classical music in Seoul National University and Northwestern University in the States. During her time at Seoul National University, Kim sought to shape her own field of interests in music by joining ensembles, including "iuvenis." Continuing onto the graduate program at Northwestern University in the States allowed her to broaden the scope of this search. There, she studied with Blair Milton, a former concertmaster of Chicago Symphony Orchestra. As a classical violinist, in addition to working on her degrees, she built experiences in diverse musical activities. As a member of Civic Orchestra of Chicago, for example, she played under the batons of world's renowned musicians such as Pierre Boulez, Pinkas Zukerman, and Andrey Boreyko. She continued working with ensembles, including an early music ensemble at the University. She actively performed, giving several recitals in Evanston, Illinois. When she returned to Korea after her studies abroad, these experiences allowed her to become one of the most active members in its chamber music scene. Starting in 2007, she participated in a musical project titled, "Musica Glorifica." Pursuing her long-term interest in historically informed performance practices, she joined a number of projects with violinist Jin Kim and other baroque music specialists. This work inspired her to go abroad again in 2010, this time to Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, and study baroque violin with François Fernandez. Having been living in Brussels for almost six years, she has been appeared all over the world as a soloist (Concerto in D Major by Pisendel, 2016, Concerto for Violin and Keyboard by Haydn, 2013), recitalist (Brussels, 2014, St. Paul, 2013, Seoul, 2012), chamber musician (in the ensembles: Formasa Baroque in Taiwan, Spirale Armonica in Brussels, Utrecht, Roma and Musica Glorifica in Seoul, Busan, Gwangju and St. Paul) and as a leader of the orchestra under the direction of Baroque masters such as Paul Dombrecht, François Fernandez and Peter Van Heyghen. Yun Kim considers it a great privilege to have had studied and performed in three different continents. This, she believes, "has allowed for garnering a richer and broader perspective in music and life than I would have otherwise. I trust this "awareness" is evident my music somehow, and I hope that I am sharing it with my listeners."

Il Gardellino

Il Gardellino

Il Gardellino is a period-instrument ensemble devoted largely to the performance of Baroque music, both instrumental and vocal. Consisting of eight core members, Il Gardellino can range in size from three to as many as thirty players, depending on demands of the repertory. That said, most of the instrumental concerts feature fewer than a dozen performers. While the group has focused heavily on Baroque music, in particular works of J.S. Bach, Telemann, and Handel, Il Gardellino's repertory takes in music by Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, and such unlikely 20th century composers as Astor Piazzolla. Il Gardellino regularly tours throughout Europe, the Americas, Israel, Japan, and elsewhere, and it has made numerous recordings over the years, most for the Accent label. Il Gardellino was founded in Belgium in 1988 by flutist Jan de Winne and oboist Marcel Ponseele, who together also serve as the ensemble's music directors. The remaining core members are: Ryo Terakado (violin), Sophie Gent (violin), Mika Akiha (violin and viola), Hervé Douchy (cello and bass violin), Shalev Ad-El (keyboard; also occasional conductor), and Lieven Termont (baritone). All of the core members are well known in early music circles and most are current or former members of such well-known ensembles as Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, La Petite Bande, and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. The inspiration behind the ensemble's name is Vivaldi's Flute Concerto in D, Il Gardellino (The Goldfinch), Op. 10/3 (RV428). While the founders and core members were highly regarded at the time of the Il Gardellino's 1988 founding, it gradually built the ensemble's reputation throughout the 1990s, eventually earning the favor of both critics and public alike. By the early years of the new century, Il Gardellino was regularly garnering praise at major concert venues not only in Europe, but in the U.S. as well. A March 2002 appearance at New York City's 92nd Street Y, featuring a performance of Handel's oratorio Esther, with the vocal ensemble Oslo Baroque Soloists, was critically acclaimed. By this time, the first recordings had just been issued, a 2001 CD of six Vivaldi concertos on the Klara label, and a 2002 disc entitled Concert Life in 18th Century Berlin, on the Accent label. There followed a string of successful recordings, including the 2006 disc of concertos by Johann Gottlieb Graun, also on Accent. Il Gardellino's concert schedule remained busy, too: 2010-2011 tours included concerts in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Romania, Thailand, and South Korea.
