The year 1939 saw Europe on the eve of a second world war -- some did not want to believe it would happen, some guessed it, and some were fatalistic or even euphoric. On this album, violinist Fabiola Kim performs three violin concertos all composed in that year -- by Béla Bartók, Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Sir William Walton. Born into a musical family, Kim has a special relationship with The Juilliard School, where her parents first met as students. She herself earned her bachelor's and master's degrees at Juilliard, where she studied with Sylvia Rosenberg and Ronald Copes. Her former teachers and mentors include Kyung Wha Chung, Namyun Kim and Choongjin Chang. She also studied at the Colburn School with Robert Lipsett and is currently a faculty member at the Colburn School of Performing Arts. BELOW: Preview of Fabiola Kim's new album 1939:
