Event Details

Described by conductor Marin Alsop as “that rare artist who brings profound musicality and prodigious technique organically together”, Yunchan Lim makes his Esplanade Concert Hall recital debut on June 28, 2024 with a virtuosic programme of the complete Études of Frédéric Chopin. 

In June 2022, Yunchan Lim became the youngest person ever to win gold at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition at the age of 18; his performances throughout showcased a “magical ability” and a “natural, instinctive quality” (La Scena) that astounded listeners around the world. The depth of his artistry and connection to listeners also secured him the Audience Award and Best Performance of a New Work.

His audacious performance of Liszt’s Transcendental Etudes “created a buzz throughout the international piano community (Gramophone), and his appearance with Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 delivered the defining moment of competition, as one critic noted: “The applause that followed was endless: a star had emerged before our eyes” (Seen and Heard International). The video of Yunchan’s Rachmaninov performance trended globally on YouTube in the days after, and has now become the most-watched version of that piece on the platform, amassing well over 10 million views. The New York Times later listed it as one of the Top 10 Classical Music Performances of 2022.
