A 27-year-old native of South Korea, Ye-Eun Choi is an exceptional violinist who will make her second appearance on the Series. In 2014, she performed along side her mentor, the venerable violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, as a lead player in the Mutter Virtuosi concert.

Mutter raised attention to the exceptional talent and maturity of the South Korean violinist by making her a member of her foundation at the age of only 16 in 2005. In an interview, Mutter said “She is a musician who looks to express herself in her own individual way; who has a distinguished, recognizable sound and commands an excellent, instinctive feel for the music. This is precisely what is naturally required from a soloist: someone who does not just perform a piece, but makes it her own. She ranks among the most talented of violinists.”

In 2009 Choi made her debut with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Alan Gilbert, and in March 2015 a highly successful debut with the San Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas. Other highlights of the last seasons include her debut with the Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin (RSB) at the Philharmonie in Berlin, her debut with the Hamburg Philharmonic and with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, as well as her recital debut at the Kennedy Center with Christoph Eschenbach on the piano.

Pianist Robert Kulek is an American of Latvian origin. He began his musical education at Mannes College of Music in New York, studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and earned a degree in Performance at Yale University. Kulek regularly performs with some of the foremost instrumentalists today.

This event is a collaboration with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

The role of music in classic film and television has always been considerable. With "When You Wish Upon a Star," both for the just-released CD and the Kansas City concert program, the ever-versatile guitarist Bill Frisell draws upon the music we have heard on screen and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships to what we see.

In a recent article about Frisell and his new CD, the Wall Street Journal's Steve Dollar wrote "movie songs are the ultimate ear worms. Who hasn’t whistled the theme from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly or crooned a Disney lullaby? Bill Frisell can’t resist, either...his latest album is devoted to composers famous for their work on the silver screen, including Ennio Morricone, Bernard Herrmann, Henry Mancini and Elmer Bernstein.”

The same musicians as on the recording—violist Eyvind Kang, bassist Thomas Morgan, drummer Kenny Wollesen, and singer Petra Haden—will join Frisell to perform re-imagined time-honored gems such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Moon River, You Only Live Twice, themes from The Godfather, Psycho, and several others.

Bill Frisell, whose own music has been featured in major motion pictures like Finding Forrester and The Million Dollar Hotel, reflects “music is so rich with all the associations that go along with it, whether it’s the words or a memory you get when you hear it.”
