Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: 24 Negro Melodies
Kim’s recording of the complete Twenty-Four Negro Melodies Op.59 of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor will be released in October 2022! Click here for complete details about the album.
“What Brahms has done for the Hungarian folk-music, Dvorak for the Bohemian, and Grieg for the Norwegian, I have tried to do for these Negro Melodies.”
Coleridge-Taylor’s celebration of melodies of both African and African-American origin are a profound addition to the late-Romantic piano repertoire.
Other Recent Recording Projects
Following her solo recital in August 2021 which featured works of black composers, Kim has released recordings of selections from that program. Find her recordings of Jonathan Bailey Holland’s Two-Part Inventions and Joseph Bologne’s Adagio in F minor on Spotify, iTunes, or wherever you find your streaming music!
Kim’s first solo recording, John Verrall: Compositions for Piano, highlights her interest in performing and recording new or ‘under-represented’ works for the instrument.
John Verrall (1908-2001) was a 20th century American composer whose body of work includes a wide variety of instrumental, orchestral, chamber and vocal music, as well as three operas and a film score. During his long tenure on the faculty at the University of Washington, John Verrall was a beloved teacher and mentor to hundreds of young composers and performers, including Michael Davenport, then a young clarinetist at the university. It was through her father and duo partner Michael that Kimberly became aware of Verrall’s powerful Piano Sonata. Her fascination with the work led to the discovery of more, and finally to this recording.
Recordings with Duo Alea
Kim is also featured on several recordings with Duo Alea, the bass clarinet/piano duo she formed with her father, Michael.
