Royal Opera House - Jette Parker Young Artists Programme Recital - Tenor

Being in the audience for South Korean tenor Konu Kim’s Jette Parker recital was like having a luxuriously warm bath on a dank January day — an excuse to wallow. Kim has a beautiful voice

 

He’s one of those rare tenors who’s secure with a delicious creamy tone to the middle and upper parts of his voice — you just want him to keep singing

 

Kim studied in Germany, which explains his exemplary German, and has just started on the ROH Programme. With his easy charm and stage presence, natural musicality and that voice - watch this space.

- Louise Flind
