Eunbi Kim on Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center

  • John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts 2700 F. St. NW Washington, DC 20566 (map)

Pianist Eunbi Kim celebrates the release of her debut album “A House of Many Rooms: New Concert Music by Fred Hersch” (Albany Records). “A House of Many Rooms” draws together rarely heard classical gems by the twelve time Grammy nominee and renowned jazz artist, Fred Hersch, which take inspiration from Tchaikovsky to tango. In Kim’s deft hands, each composition by the exploratory artist Hersch, (who co-produced the album with Ryan Streber) evokes a distinct sound, atmosphere, or color waiting to be uncovered and interpreted by the listener. Kim plays this rich and virtuosic music vividly and fervently, exploring Hersch’s flip-side, as one would any newly discovered treasure trove from a living master.

Eunbi is known for her genre-defying, often interdisciplinary recitals (“Murakami Music,” “re: last night”), which have been presented in prestigious venues in New York (Symphony Space, 92nd Street Y, Le Poisson Rouge, Columbia University, The Cell Theatre) and across the United States (Kennedy Center, Asia Society Texas Center, PianoForte Foundation, Georgetown University, among many others).

Special Guest: Solomia Gorokhivska, violinist
