Hailed for performances of “sheer magic” and “suave musicianship,” Dasol Kim has established a career that brings him to North and South America, Asia, and Europe. Among his many noteworthy solo engagements, Dasol is in the midst of a four-year project to perform the complete cycle of the 32 Beethoven Piano Sonatas in Switzerland and Korea. He is also a sought-after concerto soloist and chamber musician: highlights include collaborations with the New York Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony, and KBS Symphony Orchestras, as well as partnerships with the Rolston Quartet, cellist Gautier Capucon, and violinist Benjamin Beilman. Now living in Berlin, Dasol credits his musical development to his mentors, Gerald Fauth and Arie Vardi.
