BOMSORI & Rafał Blechacz

 

Polish melancholy and French elegance may enter into a wonderfully symbiotic relationship in music, a point well illustrated by the works of Frédéric Chopin, who, Polish by birth, settled in France. This was also the point that was uppermost in the minds of  Bomsori Kim and the Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz when they selected the works for their first album together and decided to combine pieces from both of these musical traditions

Concert programme:

Mozart - Sonata F - Major K. 376

Faure- Sonata  A-Major Op.13 No.1

Debussy- Sonata g- minor

Szymanowski - Sonata d-minor Op 9
