Music at Monica's presents David Kim recital

See also

David Kim, concert master of the Philadelphia Orchestra, performed a violin recital on Sunday at St. Monica’s Church in Berwyn. As part of the musical outreach program, Music at Monica’s, Kim performed works including Brahms, Beethoven, Gershwin, and Sarasate, accompanied by pianist Jeffrey Uhlig.

The musical selection spanned the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Gershwin’s jazzy It Ain’t Necessarily So was juxtaposed with the romantic “Meditation” from Thais by Massenet, concluding with Sarasate’s Zapateado with lots of brilliant left hand pizzicato.

The audience, nearly filling the church to capacity, was a keenly appreciative one, absolutely silent in between the movements of Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” sonata, not a single cough or rustled program to be heard.

The mood was informal as Kim introduced some of the pieces to the audience with a discussion of historical background. The acoustics, however, were a little unfortunate depending on where one sat. While the music was heard clearly in the center of the church building, it sounded more muffled when heard sitting to the right or left of the altar.

This concert was the fourth in the Music at Monica’s 2013-2014 season. Music at Monica’s provides free or low-cost cultural events to the community at large.
