Linfield piano recital to feature Kim

Albert Kim, assistant professor of music at Linfield College, will perform a diverse program of solo works on the piano on Saturday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in the Richard and Lucille Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall at Linfield.

The program will include works by Haydn, Satie, Ginastera, Ireland and Ravel. The program’s centerpiece is Maurice Ravel’s 1905 piano suite “Miroirs,” which Kim will perform in memory of Eastman classmate Gregory DeTurck.
