Among the organists who particularly promoted and influenced her artistic development, in addition to Ton Koopman and Michel Chapuis, Sarah Kim names Jean Guillou.

Programme

Sarah Kim is a musical world citizen: born in Berlin, she grew up in Australia, where she completed her studies at the Sydney Conservatory of Music. A scholarship for a postgraduate course led her to the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Paris, which she completed with distinction; she later continued her training at the Schola Cantorum in Basle. The musician, who today lives in Paris, has long since made a name for herself at numerous international competitions as one of the most promising representatives in her field; besides her role as organist at the Paris churches Notre-Dame-des-Vertus and Saint George’s Anglican Church, she has concertised in Great Britain, Austria, Germany and Australia.

Among the organists who particularly promoted and influenced her artistic development Sarah Kim counts, besides Ton Koopman and Michel Chapuis, Jean Guillou, to whom she is dedicating her debut at the Karl Schuke organ of the Berlin Philharmonie. As an homage to Guillou, who will, by the way, himself perform on the Schuke organ on 14 February on the Berlin Philharmonic Foundation’s organ series, the artist has programmed a broad diversity of styles, original works edited by her mentor or arranged by Guillou for organ: from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to the three widely differing romantic composers Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt and Peter Tchaikovsky to Modest Mussorgsky, whose cycle Pictures at an Exhibition will wrap up this organ concert.
