Combining integrity with elegance and focus with panache, Hyeyoon Park is an artist of outstanding style and virtuosity. Born in Seoul, she studied at the junior colleges of the Korean National University of Arts and of the University of Cincinnati. She also studied at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin and with Christian Tetzlaff at the Kronberg Academy, where she completed her Master’s degree in 2016. Since making her orchestral debut at the age of nine with the Seoul Philharmonic, she has achieved international acclaim playing with major orchestras around the world. “Her technique and command over the instrument are breath-taking, her playing being fully devoted to the music,” raved the Neue Westfälische. Hyeyoon Park was the youngest winner ever of the ARD International Music Competition in Munich at seventeen in 2009. Two years later she received a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and a year after that the London Music Masters Award.

Park’s partner for this LMMC recital is British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, described by The Independent as “ one in a million”. He is internationally recognized for his electrifying performances, distinctive sound and insightful interpretations.
