ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kim Angelis
Welcome to a musical adventure, guided by Kim Angelis. She is an internationally acclaimed violin virtuoso and composer who has successfully transcended artistic boundaries - a free spirit blazing a melodic trail through the territories of classical, world, and multi-cultural music. Kim’s vision of a “Gypsy chamber music,” liberally flavored with passion, is exciting and inspirational. Kim Angelis has enthralled concert audiences from Ancud, Chile, to Alaska and over the seas to Asia with her dazzling virtuosity, romantic writing, and exuberant stage presence. The music of Kim Angelis has been heard on Network TV, PBS, NPR, and in the award-winning documentary film, Saviors of the Forest. The independent film, Sweet Nothings, exclusively features music by Kim Angelis, which was nominated for “Best Original Score” by the California Independent Film Society; the same film was also nominated for “Best Score” by the International Independent Film Tour. Her 1996 CD, Esperanza, was selected as a “Choice Recording” by prestigious Strings magazine, and was nominated by Just Plain Folks for Best Instrumental Album. Kim’s most recent CD, Gypsy’s Odyssey (2005), has made “Top Ten” lists in places as diverse as Santa Cruz, CA, and Herford, Germany. In July 2007, Kim’s composition, “Zingaro!”, won the Global Rhythm Magazine international Song Contest. Some of the violinist’s most memorable experiences took place on foreign soil; Kim treasures her two concert tours of Taiwan - replete with humorous situations - which culminated in multiple-encore appearances at Taipei’s prestigious National Concert Hall. A pair of extended concert engagements in Chile, which included performances at Universities, Galleries, and the spectacular Palacio Vergado, provided fertile ground for the composer’s imagination. One of the most exciting “performances” of Kim’s music was at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, when
world champion gymnast Kui Yuanyuan of China used music by Kim Angelis for her floor exercise. NBC gave Kui Yuanyuan’s performance prime-time coverage, thus exposing Kim’s music to the “world’s largest audience.” Currently, junior world champion gymnast Amelia Racea of Romania is performing her floor exercise to Kim’s music.
Kim Angelis majored in music at the University of California, Irvine, where she studied with the best violinists in the Los Angeles Philharmonic, including concertmaster Sidney Harth and Ivan Galamian protegee Lori Ulanova. She won every available scholarship, and was featured soloist with the UCI Symphony, performing major works by Vivaldi and Saint-Saens. After graduating Magna Cum Laude, the violinist met and later married guitarist Josef Gault, who introduced her to World Music. “Josef really broadened my outlook,” she enthuses. “One hundred years ago music was confined to the areas in which it developed. But today, with modern recording and the internet, we are able to listen to music from every different culture. I like to collect the sonic images evoked, and write a new ‘Gypsy chamber music’.” Beautiful, historic Astoria, OR, is the place Kim Angelis calls home - it is the rich source of her serenity and inspiration. Here she and Josef are restoring a classic 1918 Craftsman bungalow, which they share with their beloved Collie,“Paco.” Kim’s Christian faith plays the primary role in her life. To quote Marilyn O’Malley of the Victory Review, “Kim’s classical training, folk influence...and deep spirituality have blended together and burgeoned into some of the most beautiful, moving music I’ve ever heard.”
