Violinist Soovin Kim joins five other artists from the acclaimed Marlboro Music Festival to perform two works by Dvorak—his Trio for Piano and Strings, op. 65, and Miniatures, op. 75a—and Bartok’s String Quartet no. 4. Along with Kim, the ensemble includes violinist Robyn Bollinger, pianist Zoltan Fejervari, violist Hwayoon Lee, and cellists Tony Rymer and Alice Yoo.
The Washington Post has called the Freer’s annual concerts by the Marlboro musicians “a virtual guarantee of musical excellence” with “astoundingly gifted virtuosos [and] . . . performances that radiate vitality and freshness.” A Post reviewer also stated: “Not only is the virtuosity . . . consistently jaw-dropping, but the freshness, rich imagination, and sheer vitality of their playing is enough to make even the most jaded concertgoer edge to the front of his seat.” Marlboro performances are “so fresh and full-blooded, so full of earthy vitality and sheer sensual pleasure, that it made you happy to be alive.”
