Savannah Music Festival: Eric Kim

Airs Thursday, April 30, at 8 p.m. While Beethoven is generally acknowledged as the first great composer of cello sonatas, there have been numerous outstanding works written for the cello as a solo instrument over the last three centuries. Composers such as Boccherini, Grieg, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Shostakovich and Britten all wrote compositions that every cellist must come to terms with at some point in their career. In this episode we listen to a cello recital featuring Eric Kim, a veteran of the SMF chamber music series, former principal cellist of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and current professor of cello at the Indiana University School of Music.
