„Sol Daniel Kim, the Korean born in Vienna in 1990, paid homage to Dvorák's B-minor concerto (1896) with romantic, but restrained mourning (love-theme in the Adagio) and also mastered the passages in the highest position and the most difficult double stops."   were the critics of the „Kleine Zeitung“, when the former student of the cellist and conductor Heinrich Schiff performed the famous Cello concerto of A. Dvorák in the Stefaniensaal of the Musikverein Graz at the Styriarte Festival in Austria.

The connection to music was established through his mother and Opera singer Choon-Ae Kim. At the age of six he decided to go down the path of a cellist, only to be accepted as a young student at the age of 9 at the University of music and performing Arts Vienna.

Recently he published his first album <South Wave, North Wind> with his intercultural Duoproject 'CelloGayageum' and received the <Soorim Cultural Prize> given by the 'Soorim Cultural Foundation' as well as a generous grant from the 'Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture'. 
In 2017 he performed with Gautier Capuçon together at the Fondation Louis Vuitton being featured at medici.tv. He was also invited to give masterclasses at festivals in Germany and Algeria.

He performed in famous concert halls such as the Stefaniensaal of the Musikverein Graz, the Auditorium of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and the Schubert Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus, where he gave his debut recital in 2009.

In 2008, he was the representative for Austria in the Eurovision Young Musicians competition and was the first prizewinner in the contest Gradus ad Parnassum 2011 and 3rd prize winner at the 48th international instrumental competition Markneukirchen in 2013.

He was a member of the UBS Verlier Festival Orchestra in 2007, where he performed with renowned conductors and soloists such as Zubin Metha, Esa Pekka Salonen, Anne Sophie Mutter and Lang Lang. He was also a member of the Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Broadcasting Station (Bayerischer Rundfunk BR) for the season 2014/15.

He worked and got his musical education with renown teachers such as Valentin Erben (young student), Heinrich Schiff (Bachelor), Jens Peter Maintz (master) and Danjulo Ishizaka (Konzertexamen) and completed all his studies with distinction. In 2016/17 he was a student of Gautier Capuçon as part of the „Classe d'excellence de violoncelle". 

From 2004 to 2010 he was a scholarship holder of the Rostropovich Cello Foundation of the Kronberg Academy and was given a cello by Jon van Kouwenhoven.

He is currently playing on an instrument from 1825 by Lorenz Mollenberg from Stockholm, which is made available to him by a generous sponsor.

"Sol Daniel Kim, der 1990 in Wien geborene Koreaner, huldigte mit romantischer, doch verhaltener Trauer (Liebesklage im Adagio) Dvoráks h-Moll-Konzert (1896) und meisterte schön auch die Passagen in höchster Lage  und die heikelsten Doppelgriffe.“  lautete die Kritik der Kleinen Zeitung, als der ehemaliger Schüler des Cellisten Heinrich Schiff im Rahmen des Styriarte Festivals im Stefaniensaal des Musikverein Graz das berühmte Cellokonzert von A. Dvorák interpretierte.

Die Verbindung zur Musik entstand, dank seiner Mutter und Opernsängerin Choon-Ae Kim, schon im Mutterleib und so kam es dazu, dass er im Alter von 6 Jahren sich dazu entschied den Weg des Cellisten einzuschlagen und schon mit 9 Jahren als Jungstudent in die Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien aufgenommen wurde.

Erst kürzlich wurde sein erstes Album <South Wave, North Wind> veröffentlicht, welches er mit seinem Duoprojekt 'CelloGayageum' aufgenommen hat. Er hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht mit der koreanischen Gayageum-istin (koreanische traditionelle Zither) eigens Werke für diese Besetzung zu komponieren, in denen musikalische sowie kulturelle Einheit zwischen dem Westen und dem fernen Osten symbolisiert wird. Weiteres wurde sein Duoprojekt mit dem <Soorim Kulturpreis> der 'Soorim Cultural Foundation' ausgezeichnet und erhielt eine großzügige Förderung der 'Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture'.

Als Solist spielte er mit Orchestern wie den Grazer Philharmonikern, recreation - Grosses Orchester, der Baden-Baden Philharmonie und der Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz nur um ein paar zu nennen und trat in renommierten Sälen wie dem Stefaniensaal des Musikverein Graz, dem Auditorium der Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris und dem Schubertsaal des Wiener Konzerthauses auf in dem er im Jahr 2009 sein Debut gab.

Im Jahr 2008 war er der Repräsentant für Österreich im Eurovision Young Musicians Wettbewerb und war der 1. Preisträger beim Wettbewerb Gradus ad Parnassum 2011 und 3. Preisträger beim 48. internationalen Instrumentalwettbewerb Markneukirchen. 

Als Orchestermitglied wirkte er 2007 im UBS Verbier Festival Orchestra mit, wo er unter anderem mit berühmten Dirigenten und Solisten wie Zubin Metha, Esa Pekka Salonen, Anne Sophie Mutter und Lang Lang auftrat. Im Jahr 2014 wurde er Mitglied des Symphonieorchesters des Bayerischen Rundfunks BR und bekam einen einjährigen Zeitvertrag für die Saison 2014/15.

Seine musikalische Ausbildung hat er seinen Lehrern Valentin Erben (Jungstudent),  Heinrich Schiff (Bachelor), Jens Peter Maintz (Master) und Danjulo Ishizaka (Meisterklassenexamen) zu verdanken und schloss alle seine Studiengänge mit Auszeichnung ab. Zuletzt war er Schüler von Gautier Capuçon als Teil der 'Classe d’excellence de violoncelle' 2016/17. 

Von 2004 - 2010 war er Stipendiat der Rostropovich Cello Foundation der Kronberg Academy und bekam für den Zeitraum ein Cello von Jon van Kouwenhoven geliehen.

Derzeit spielt er auf einem Instrument aus dem Jahr 1825 von Lorenz Mollenberg aus Stockholm, welches ihm von einem großzügigen Sponsor zur Verfügung gestellt wird.
