The Korean violinist’s new CD is released on 18 June


In the June 2021 issue, Korean violinist Bomsori discusses her new CD Violin on Stage, which celebrates the violin in music for opera and ballet. ’I wanted to be a singer very much but realised there was a limit to my abilities, so I stopped. That’s why I chose to play a high-voiced instrument, so I could sing through that,’ she recalls. ‘Kogan, Heifetz and Milstein all sang through their instruments,. You understand immediately what they’re saying, without any prior knowledge or background. It’s actually too big to describe what it is they do. But they are certainly my idols and I want to produce that kind of sound from my violin as well.’ 

The CD is released by Deutsche Grammophon on 18 June and we have ten copies to give away. For your chance to win one, simply click here to submit your details.
