In association with CÚIRT International Festival of Literature
A Girl, A Violin, A life Unstrung
Min Kym violinist and author in conversation with Toner Quinn
Our Wanderlust theme continues.. Korean-born, London-raised violinist Min Kym talks about growing up as a child prodigy, gives insights into the world of a budding soloist and the special relationship a violinist develops with their instrument, in this case a priceless Stradivarius that was dramatically stolen from her in central London. She will read from her bestselling memoir “Gone: A Girl, a Violin, a Life Unstrung” and perform some of the works mentioned in the book.
Toner Quinn is editor of The Journal of Music and Lecturer in Publishing at NUI Galway.
