Review: The two faces of Beethoven (DSO Berlin, Linz, Austria)
Timothy Chooi... the Canadian-American violinist focused on the lyrical side of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto and was able to demonstrate his brilliant technique.

A promise for the future: Timothy Chooi (Ein Versprechen für die Zukunft: Timothy Chooi)
Press Review from "Tiroler Tageszeitung"
A promise for the future: Timothy Chooi
Flattery, sighs and sobs, there were also those with Antonín Dvorák's Romance for violin and orchestra in F minor, Op. 11. The heartbreaker, that is, the soloist of the evening was Canadian-born Timothy Chooi. The 28-year-old is able to use the colors of his Windsor-Weinstein Stradivarius in a varied and nuanced way, so that the listener gets the impression of convincing interpretative immediacy. There is someone who makes music out of his own deep empathy for music, full of sensitivity in the discreet, full of luminosity and esprit, someone who succeeds in making the music speak.
