Soomin Kim Four Love Songs

Four Love Songs explores the theme of love, which I find to be the most fascinating, motivating and inseparable from music at all times. I believe that its immediacy, spontaneity and vulnerability are what makes our lives beautiful and special, and that that is the reason why love has never stopped inspiring us poets, artists and musicians. My motivation and inspiration have always been the people and the things that I love, and I'd like to share with all of you my confession to those that keep me alive and going.

Four Love Songs was commissioned by Tim Weiss, director of Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble, and premiered in November 2018 by Oberlin Sinfonietta.
