"It's always been my dream to perform Fauré's First Violin Sonata with an outstanding pianist such as Rafał," says Korean violinist Bomsori Kim. It was Rafał Blechacz who was particularly keen to play Szymanowski's Violin Sonata. Together, the new duo partners travel from Paris to Warsaw, and from Warsaw to Hong Kong to play live at the Yellow Lounge.

For his first ever chamber music recording on Deutsche Grammophon, pianist Blechacz teams up with Kim. Polish melancholy and French elegance have a wonderfully symbiotic relationship in music, famously illustrated in the works of Frédéric Chopin, a composer who was Polish by birth and settled in France. The duo perform gems from both countries, including works by Fauré, Debussy, Szymanowski, and of course, Chopin. Watch the attached video LIVE from Hong Kong's Yellow Lounge.
