Plano Symphony: Cliburn Gold Medalist

Gold Medalist of the 2017 Fifteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, 28-year-old pianist Yekwon Sunwoo has been hailed for “his total command over the instrument and its expressiveness” (San Francisco Examiner). A powerful and virtuoso performer, he also, in his own words, “strives to reach for the truth and pure beauty in music” and hopes to convey those fundamental emotions to audiences.

Mr. Sunwoo has performed as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under Marin Alsop, Juilliard Orchestra with Itzhak Perlman at Avery Fisher Hall, Houston Symphony Orchestra with James Feddeck, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra with Leonard Slatkin and Nicholas McGegan, National Orchestra of Belgium, Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra, and others.

The first Korean to win Cliburn Gold, Mr. Sunwoo launched his debut season in 2017–2018 with appearances, among others, in Brussels, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Madrid, Helsingborg, and across Germany. His appearances in Asia include those in Beirut, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and across South Korea.

Mr. Sunwoo performs Rachmaninoff’s thrilling second piano concerto, and the season concludes with Tchaikovsky’s powerful Symphony No. 5, a Plano Symphony Orchestra debut. Truly a spectacular way to cap off a season of the “Best of the Best!”
