Clara-Jumi Kang Violin Recital (with Yekwon Sunwoo, piano)

5 November - 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$180 – $520

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Acclaimed Korean violinist Clara-Jumi Kang makes her Hong Kong recital début, performing with Van Cliburn Gold Medal-winning pianist Yekwon Sunwoo.

Clara-Jumi Kang is an artist of supreme musicality, impeccable refinement and poise as borne out by the many awards and accolades she has received since she first burst on the scene as winner of the Indianapolis International Violin Competition in 2010, hot on the heels of her successes at the Seoul Violin Competition (2009) and the Sendai Violin Competition (2010). She has toured worldwide with leading orchestras including the Munich Philharmonic and LA Philharmonic, earning accolades such as “100 Future’s most promising, influential people of Korea” (DongA Times). She was awarded the Daewon Music Award and Kumho Musician of the Year for her outstanding musical accomplishments.

Kang will start her stunning recital programme with the immensely technical and emotional Bach Chaconne for solo violin. She is then joined by Yekwon Sunwoo, hailed for his “firm, boldly projected, and technically faultless playing” (Chicago Classical Review), in the remarkable Weinberg Sonata No. 4, followed by the expressive and romantic Strauss Violin Sonata.

Clara-Jumi Kang plays on the 1702 “Thunis” Stradivarius.
