“…electrifying results..gutsy and communicative performance…”

"...Kam’s livewire and ebullient personality translated into a performance of energy and vigour..."

Chang Tou Liang, Straits Times, The Red Violin with the Re:Sound Collective, Victoria Concert Hall, July 2017

"...How she sustained interest through its languorous and somnolent path was a feat, which meant in compensation the final Toccare had to be a hell- for-leather romp..."

Chang Tou Liang, Straits Times, Adams Violin Concerto with Singapore Symphony, January 2017

“Even more impressive was the Singaporean violinist Ning Kam…who had just as much flair, plus a totally confident stage presence and an absolute command of the music…thrilling energy and control.”

Geoff Brown, The Times, London, January 13, 2005
on the Park Lane Group Series at the Purcell Room

“…this petite young woman filled the hall with passion…truly a superb finish to a superb programme…”

Erica Jeal, The Guardian, London, January 13, 2005
on the Park Lane Group Series at the Purcell Room

“Violinist Ning Kam thrills Jepson Gala Concert crowd…..with a rousing interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, Kam demonstrated exceptional technical facility and warmth of tone….a spontaneous standing ovation…”

Sterling Adams, Savannah Onstage, March, 2002

“The contest ended with the performance by Ning Kam…who was manifestly the best violinist of the entire contest. With a compelling Violin Sonata by Ravel, she presented herself with her clear line as the small Herge of her instrument…..Ning Kam is a very athletic violinist who never gets carried away by her phenomenal technique. She was one of the greatest musicians I saw on this stage. Her swinging, lively and yet controlled version of Eichberg was the most beautiful one of the series…..the heavy [Bartok] Second Violin Concerto was a complete success…Ning Kams performance is beyond words…”

Peter Veermersch, De Standaard,
on the Queen Elisabeth Competition, 2001

"....utterly compelling listening..."

Chang Tou Liang, Straits Times, Bach Continuum, Arts House, June 2017

"...The famous Blues movement was milked for all its jazzy glory, with slides and slurs galore and its punchy rhythmic staccatos timed to heady perfection. Could serious classical music ever sound sexy? Here was the evidence...."

Chang Tou Liang, Straits Times, Sparkling Rhythms recital, February 2015

“….Ning Kam building and maintaining tension with powerful tone and a sure technique…”

Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, January 13, 2005
on the Park Lane Group Series at the Purcell Room

“Singapore’s most exciting violinist.”

Straits Times, Singapore, October 10th, 2002

“Ning Kam is a totally different type of personality who will illuminate the end of the evening and the contest with tawny and entrancing colours…superbly controlled…sometimes humourous and devilishly sensual…moving victory of the most genuine music”

Michel Debrocq, Le Soir, Brussels,
on the Queen Elisabeth Competition of Belgium, 2001

“…Kam was able to achieve what few other finalists could: to communicate the respective styles of three strongly differentiated works. Her rendition of Eichberg’s composition pulsated with vitality and joy and her Ravel Sonata created a tranquil, impressionistic painting awash with colour….she convinced the audience of her strong artistic personality in a strong and soulful rendition.”
