ArtistsSunwook Kim (piano)
London-based Sunwook Kim came to international recognition when he won the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006, aged just 18, becoming the competition’s youngest winner for 40 years, as well as its first Asian winner.
His performance of Brahms’s Concerto No.1 with the Hallé and Sir Mark Elder in the competition’s finals attracted unanimous praise from the press.
Since then, he has established a reputation as one of the finest pianists of his generation, appearing as a concerto soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras and in major recital venues in London, across Europe and in Japan.
Sunwook Kim has also enjoyed an ongoing relationship with the Hallé Orchestra and Sir Mark Elder, performing in a variety of repertoire across a number of seasons.
Here they return to Brahms’s two masterworks; pieces which were separated by two decades and which display very differing musical and emotional outlooks, from the more ardent First to the more rhapsodic Second.
‘The Halle continues after so many decades to prove itself a vital force.’ - The Sunday Times
‘[Sunwook Kim] was a poetic soloist in a daringly expansive, lyrical account of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No.2.’ - The Observer
