Sunday, October 7, 2018 • 3PM
The first Korean pianist to win the Cliburn Gold, Yekwon Sunwoo has been hailed for “his total command over the instrument and its expressiveness” (San Francisco Examiner). He has already performed to greatest acclaim in the new, spectacular Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg as well as major venues in Brussels, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Madrid, Helsingborg, Beirut, Taipei, and Hong Kong, demonstrating “utmost sensitivity and exceptional tonal refinement” (Chicago Tribune).
