Concert of Rising Musicians
Sunday, September 19, 3:00 PM, 2021
New York Classical Players (NYCP), under the baton of Dongmin Kim, debuts in Boston. Repertoire includes J. Brahms' Double Concerto with Brannon Cho and Yoojin Jang.
NYCP enters its 12th season with the mission of the highest standards of artistry, collaboration, and virtuosity. Inspired by the belief that access to musical excellence is an essential human right, NYCP presents all concerts free of charge. Dongmin Kim, founder and Music Director of NYCP, was awarded the distinguished Herbert von Karajan Fellowship, which resulted in a residency with the Wien Philharmonic Orchestra at the Salzburg Music Festival. He was a conducting staff at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra as the Schmidt Conducting Fellow. He worked with Andrew Litton, Raymond Leppard, Mario Venzago, Christoph Poppen, Lynn Harrell, André Watts, Garrick Ohlsson, and Lang Lang.
As a lover of chamber music, Brannon Cho has shared the stage with artists such as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Christian Tetzlaff, Gidon Kremer, and Joshua Bell. His recent festival appearances include Marlboro, Kronberg Academy, Music@Menlo, and Prussia Cove. In addition, Brannon Cho is a scholarship holder in the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation, and the recipient of the 2019 Ivan Galamian Award, previously held by James Ehnes.
Applauded by The Strad for her “fiery virtuosity” and “consummate performances,” violinist YooJin Jang is a winner of the 2017 Concert Artists Guild Competition and First Prize winner of the 2016 Sendai International Music Competition. These victories have resulted in a busy itinerary of international recital and concerto engagements and also the release of two new recordings for the dynamic young talent lauded by the Boston Musical Intelligencer as being “a performer without fear or technical limitation.”
