February 12, 2013

Pianist Yoonie Han is praised for her “flowing tones, poetic phrasing, and heavenly singing melodies” (Cincinnati Enquirer). She has won top prizes from distinguished international competitions and the highest accolades for her performances in major concert halls in the United States and around the world

During the 2011-12 season, Ms. Han made European debuts with the Berliner Symphoniker at the Berlin Philharmonie, the Bergamo Festival in Italy and Salle Cortot in Paris. In 2012-13, she embarks upon a recital tour to Steinway & Sons’ locations in the United States and Europe, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Slovak Philharmonic Hall and solos with Philippe Entremont and the Boca Raton Symphonia.In 2009, Ms. Han was honored with the Gawon Music Award as the “most brilliant pianist aged 17 to 31 of any nationality who possesses the most promising potential for global prominence.” She is the first-prize winner of the Washington International Piano Competition (2011), the Fulbright Concerto Competition (2011), Juilliard’s Gina Bachauer Piano Competition (2008), the World Piano Competition (2008) and the Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Piano Competition (2005). Following her 2001 grand-prize award in the Korea National Music Competition, the Korean Ministry of Culture named her its “most promising young artist.”

Ms. Han made her solo debut with the Seoul Philharmonic at age 13 and has since performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, Banff Festival Orchestra and I Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano.
