Full Biography

Combining integrity with elegance and focus with panache, Hyeyoon Park is an artist of outstanding style and virtuosity. The youngest ever first prize winner of the ARD International Music Competition in Munich at the age of 17 in 2009, Hyeyoon went on to receive the London Music Masters Award in 2012, which led to numerous concerts in prominent venues throughout the UK. Passionate about education, this award has also provided her with a regular platform to bring music and performance into London’s schools, many in underprivileged areas. She was also a recipient of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in 2011.

Hyeyoon made her orchestral debut at the age of nine with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she has achieved international acclaim with orchestras such as the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, hr-Sinfonieorchester Frankfurt, Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, Chamber Orchestra of Belgium, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Wiener KammerOrchester, Mariinsky Orchestra St. Petersburg, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra and Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Tokyo. In Spring 2016 she made her London Philharmonic Orchestra debut performing the Korngold Violin Concerto under the baton of Osmo Vänskä.

The 2017/18 season sees Hyeyoon appear as guest soloist with the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra under Kazushi Ono, BBC National Orchestra of Wales with Kazuki Yamada and Philharmonisches Orchester Kiel and Orchester des Pfalztheaters Kaiserslautern, both with Daniel Huppert. With pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, Hyeyoon Park performs a duo programme in Vienna’s Konzerthaus, for Dortmund’s “Junge Wilde” Series in the city’s Konzerthaus, and in Biel. The duo will be joined by Brett Dean, Kian Soltani and Leon Bosch for performances of Brahms Piano Quartet No.1 and Schubert’s Trout Quintet at the London International Chamber Series, Birmingham Town Hall and Wattens Festival.

With pianist Huw Watkins she gave the world premiere of a work by Mark Bowden making her debut at the Newbury Spring Festival. She has also given recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Tonhalle Zurich, Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Musical Olympus Festival and Les Violons de la Paix. A keen chamber musician, Hyeyoon has taken part in various chamber music festivals around the world such as the Spannungen Festival in Heimbach, Moritzburg Festival, Molyvos International Music Festival and Marlboro Festival, USA, at the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida. She has collaborated with Gidon Kremer, Andras Schiff, Christian Tetzlaff, Antje Weithaas, Yuri Bashmet, Lars Vogt, Daniel Hope, Alban Gerhardt, Jan Vogler and Florian Uhlig.

Born in 1992 in Seoul, Hyeyoon studied at the junior colleges of the Korean National University of Arts and University of Cincinnati with teacher Prof. Piotr Milewski. She also studied with Professor Antje Weithaas at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin and with Christian Tetzlaff as a Young Soloist at Kronberg Academy, where she completed her Master’s degree in 2016. These studies were funded by the Nikolas Gruber Stipendium.
