“Simply, relentlessly, magnificent: a miracle of momentum and humanity” (The Sunday Times), legendary violinist Kyung Wha is joined by long-time sonata partner Kevin Kenner on piano. In their Koerner Hall debut, they will perform works by Brahms, Franck, and Beethoven.
Born in South Korea, Kyung Wha Chung is recognised throughout the world as one of the finest violinists of her generation. A prolific recording artist, her dazzling and probing artistry has made her a much-acclaimed performer throughout her 50-year career. Lauded for her passion, musicality, and the intense excitement that she brings to her performances, Chung’s uniquely expressive interpretations of the violin literature have established her as an artist of the very highest stature. She has received many prizes and honours, including the Medal of Civil Merit, the government of South Korea’s highest honour.
“Radiant playing, full of boldness … Kyung Wha Chung’s readings can stand alongside the best and most illustrious of her peers for sheer sensuality of playing. Refinement in its purest state.” (Diapason)
Pianist Kevin Kenner has been praised as "one of the finest American pianists to come along in years" by the Chicago Tribune; The Financial Times described him as a "player of grace, subtle variety and strength, with a mature grasp of dramatic structure and proportion," and the Washington Post has proclaimed him "an artist whose intellect, imagination and pianism speak powerfully and eloquently."
