Ms. Kim took all their hurdles in stride and displayed remarkable stylistic versatility… in perfect command of fingers and bow, flawless in intonation, pure and beautiful in sound.”
New York Concert Review on So-Ock Kim

“Weiss has both powerful technique and exceptional insight”
The Washington Post on Orion Weiss

Indulge yourself in the profound emotion and expressiveness of chamber music from the Romantic period. The concert begins with the enchanting Schubert Fantasie, performed by the dynamic piano duo Orion Weiss and Shai Wosner. This is followed by the captivating melodies of the Smetana Trio, featuring the dazzling violinist So-Ock Kim, cello powerhouse Gary Hoffman and the brilliant Orion Weiss. The concert reaches its emotional pinnacle with the resplendent beauty of Brahms’ String Quintet, skillfully interpreted by the virtuosic ensemble led by star violinist Ning Feng.
