Rising soloist Ye-Eun Choi makes her debut under the baton of Jaap van Zweden, playing the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Gyeonggi Philharmonic Orchestra at the Seoul Arts Center in South Korea today, March 22nd.
Violinist Ye-Eun Choi is defined by her dynamic sound, rich with vibrant timbre, sensitivity and nuance. Her colourful, expressive lyricism and virtuosity has earned her acclaim for her engagements as both a soloist and a chamber musician. She was discovered and mentored by Anne-Sophie Mutter at age 16 in 2005. Ms Mutter has since said: “She is a musician who looks to express herself in her own individual way; who has a distinguished, recognizable sound and commands an excellent, instinctive feel for the music. This is precisely what is naturally required from a soloist: someone who does not just perform a piece, but makes it her own. She ranks among the most talented of violinists.”
Highlights of the season 2017/18 include debuts with M. Jansons and K. Penderecki, among others, and a re-invitation by the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra to participate in a concert during the National Liberation Day of Korea. Highlights of previous seasons include her debut with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Alan Gilbert, tours with the NDR Radio Philharmonic Orchestra Hannover and A. Manze to South Korea, with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, and Y. Nézet-Séguin in the Netherlands and Italy, and with the Czech Philharmonic, and J. Bělohlávek with concerts in Luxemburg and Warsaw. Furthermore, she made her debut with the Bamberg Symphony under the baton of C. Eschenbach, and performed with l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, and M. Honeck.
