We are delighted to welcome Sunwook Kim back to Parbold. He won the Leeds International Piano Competition aged just 18, becoming the competition’s youngest winner for 40 years, as well as its first Asian winner.
Kim’s Leeds final performance of Brahms Piano Concerto in D minor with The Hallé and Sir Mark Elder won unanimous praise. He has established a reputation across the world as one of the finest pianists of his generation.His Beethoven recordings have received outstanding reviews and awards from the BBC magazine.
“The swell of suspended harmonies was perfectly controlled, the chords perfectly struck and voiced, and Kim always kept the sense of restless searching at just the right level of intensity.”
