Violin prodigy in recital

Submitted By Caryl Dockter

The Fremont Symphony Guild will present violin prodigy Stephen Kim in recital on Sunday afternoon, April 18, at the home of Steve and Edith Pietkiewicz. Stephen, 14, has received first prizes in the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition, Mondavi Center Young Artists Competition and Felix Khuner Concerto Competition, among others. He has been featured soloist on National Public Radio's "From the Top" and has been selected as one of nine "Exceptional Young Violinists" world-wide to take part in a symposium with such master teachers as Itzhak Perlman.

Reviewing his recent Davies Symphony Hall debut with the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra, San Francisco Classical Voice wrote that his performance "left many of the audience in a roaring state of astonishment. Stephen's maturity of phrasing, not unlike Yehudi Menuhin's, was the very soul of Romantic tastefulness."

Stephen began playing the violin when he was three years old and has studied with Bettina Mussumeli at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music since he was eight. You can hear this extraordinary young musician in an intimate setting, performing a number of virtuosic pieces from the violin literature of the past three centuries.

Seating is limited and reservations are required. Tickets are $35 and include wine and hors d'oeuvres after the performance. For more information, please contact Phyllis Merrifield at (510) 793-5108 or the Symphony office at (510) 794-1659.
