Violin Soloist

‘For years I have struggled to find that elusive combination of great response, great quality and great projection in a violin string.
In the Il Cannone I have finally found just that. They are, in many ways, the perfect strings.’

About Benny

Whether playing in the intimate setting of a string quartet or performing a concerto on the stage of a concert hall, Benny Kim’s “emotional depth and musical carriage are his real drawing cards. His is a style that touches the peak of romantic violin playing.” (The Washington Post) Known for his versatility as soloist, chamber musician and teacher, Mr. Kim has been described as having “titanium technique” and producing “exquisite, pearly colorations.”
