This year’s Dvořák Prague International Festival will introduce two performers who, despite their youth, have already achieved a number of noteworthy successes and are well on their way to big, international careers. The Korean violinist Bomsori Kim and the Czech pianist Lukáš Klánský have selected an attractive, varied program, in which there will be something to suit every listener – from the romantic musical language of Frédéric Chopin to Russian modernism.
Bomsori Kim - violin
Lukáš Klánský - piano
the young South Korean violinist Bomsori Kim graduated from the Seoul National University, and she continued her studies at the Juilliard School in New York. She has had success at a number of international competitions, including the Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow, the famed Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, and the ARD International Competition in Munich.
She has already introduced herself as a soloist on several important concert stages including the Golden Hall of Vienna’s Musikverein, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, and the Hercules Hall in Munich.
She appears with a number of important orchestras around the world, including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Warsaw National Philharmonic, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, and the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. She has performed under the baton of such conductors as Lukasz Borowicz, Marin Alsop, and Julian Kovatchev. Last year, she issued her debut CD with violin concertos by Wieniawski and Shostakovich.
Lukáš Klánský is one of the most respected Czech pianists of the younger generation. A graduate of the Prague Conservatory and the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, he is a laureate of several international competitions (incl. the International Rotary Piano Competition 2012 and the Darmstadt Chopin International Wettbewerb 2013).
Besides solo recitals, he also appears playing chamber music, especially as a member of the Lobkowicz Trio, with which he won first prize at the Johannes Brahms International Competition in Pörtschach, Austria. Among his other partners on the concert stage have been the violinist Václav Hudeček, the harpist Jana Boušková, the Pražák Quartet, the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra of Pardubice, and the conductor Libor Pešek.
Lukáš Klánský’s professional musical activities are not limited to the piano – he also studied conducting in the studio of Prof. Miriam Němcová and of Prof. Hynek Farkač and choral music in the class of Prof. Miroslav Košler. He is also a teacher, active at the Pilsen Conservatory and at the Grammar School and Music School of the City of Prague.

Our party was from US, Tanzania and Germany and we wanted a non-touristy performance. The artists were so talented and so full of life, and experiencing Prague folks out for a night made us feel part of the fabric of the city. It was easy to get tickets from the US, the concert hall is so spectacular. However, we cannot say enough positives accolades about these two performers, especially the very stellar Ms. Kim. Kudos to all of you.
My ticket was presented to me at the door and the seat allocated afforded an excellent view in the middle of the theatre. The venue was wonderful and the concert was great. I had a very enjoyable experience.
