Hyeyoon Park, VIOLINE

On the concert stage, Hyeyoon Park combines integrity with elegance, focus with panache, everything that makes her an artist of true style and virtuosity. In 2012, the London Music Masters Award brought Hyeyoon Park to the most prestigious concert halls in the UK. Furthermore, this award provided her with a platform to bring her music and performances to many disadvantaged areas in London schools. Previously, in 2011, she received the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and she is the youngest ever grand prize winner of the ARD International Music Competition.

Hyeyoon Park's concert career began at the age of nine with her debut with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she has performed with many renowned orchestras, including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, the NDR Symphony Orchestra Hamburg, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Montréal Symphony, the Mariinsky Theater Symphony Orchestra St. Petersburg and NHK as well as Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Tokyo. In the summer of 2016, Hyeyoon Park led an ensemble of conservatory students in concerts at the Hindsgavl and Tivoli Festivals in Denmark.

As an enthusiastic chamber musician, Hyeyoon Park has performed at renowned festivals and concert series: London Wigmore Hall, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Musical Olympus St. Petersburg and Les Violons de la Paix. At the Newbury Spring Festival, she performed the world premiere of a sonata by Mark Bowden with pianist Huw Watkins and was immediately invited back. Her chamber music partners include Gidon Kremer, Andras Schiff, Yuri Bashmet, Lars Vogt, Daniel Hope, Alban Gerhardt, Antje Weithaas and Florian Uhlig.

Hyeyoon Park was born in Seoul in 1992 and studied at the Junior College of the Korea National University of Arts and at the University of Cincinnati with her teacher Piotr Milewski. From 2006, she studied with Antje Weithaas at the Hanns Eisler School of Music in Berlin and from 2010 with Christian Tetzlaff at Kronberg Academy, where she graduated with a master's degree in 2016. Her studies were funded by the Nikolas Gruber Scholarship. She has also performed at the Marlboro Festival in the USA at the invitation of Mitsuko Uchida.

Hyeyoon Park plays a violin made by the German violin maker Stefan Peter Greiner.

Zlata Chochieva; PIANO

In his Gramophone review of Zlata Chochieva's sensational CD recording of Chopin's Etudes, which made Gramophone's Top 10 Chopin recordings list in 2017, music critic Jeremy Nicholas claimed it was "surely one of the most consistently inspired, masterfully executed and beautiful-sounding versions" he could recall.

In the 2023/24 season, Zlata Chochieva will make her debut in New York, where she will take part in the Wednesday Caspary Auditorium Series at Rockefeller University and Peoples' Symphony Concerts at New York's legendary Town Hall. As part of her American tour, she will also perform in Durham (Duke University Piano Series), Cleveland (Lee University), San Francisco (San Francisco Herbst Hall), Miami (Friends of Chamber Music Miami) and Portland (Portland Ovation Series).

Following her debut at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie with the Hamburg Camerata last April, Zlata will return to the Elbphilharmonie with a recital in the coming season. Zlata's other European concert dates will include appearances in Berlin (Berlin Konzerthaus), Hamburg (debut at the Laeiszhalle), Milan (Bach piano concertos at the Sala Verdi) and Rosendal (at Leif Ove Andsnes' Rosendal Chamber Music Festival).

At the opening of her concert season, in September 2023, Zlata will perform at Rachmaninov's Villa Senar in Hertenstein, where she will interpret and comment on Rachmaninov's works as part of the project "The Alchemy of the Piano" by German film producer Jan Schmidt-Garre.

Zlata performed on the concert stage for the first time when she was just four years old. Just three years later, she enjoyed her orchestral debut with a Mozart concerto in the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory. Later, as an internationally recognized pianist, she played in this hall again several times. She has also performed at the Herkulessaal in Munich and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Philharmonie de Paris and London's Wigmore Hall, the Teatro La Fenice in Venice and Konzerthaus Berlin, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the Victoria Hall in Geneva, the Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen, Casa da Música Porto and Taiwan's National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts.

She has worked with numerous major orchestras, including the Russian National Orchestra and Russian State Symphony Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Munich Chamber Orchestra and Orchestra Philharmonique de Nice. Among the conductors with whom Zlata has worked are Mikhail Pletnev, Simon Gaudenz, Terje Mikkelsen and Tugan Sokhiev.

Zlata's repertoire includes both orchestral (more than 50 solo concertos) and chamber works. As a chamber musician, she has collaborated with Stephen Kovacevic, Lynn Harrell, Gilles Apap and Jacquelyn Wagner.

Chochieva's most recent CD recording "Im Freien", which she recorded exclusively for Naive Records, won the Gramophone Editor's Choice Award in June 2023. Her first recording for the Naive label, "Chiaroscuro", a unique combination of compositions by Scriabin and Mozart, released in May 2022 to mark the 150th anniversary of Scriabin's birth, was crowned with the Critic's Choice Award by International Piano Magazine. The collection of piano transcriptions by Rachmaninov, Liszt and Friedman, released during the pandemic under the title "(re)creations" on the Accentus label, won the prestigious German Record Critics' Award.

Zlata Chochieva was born in Moscow and now lives in Berlin. She was Mikhail Pletnev's protégé at the Moscow Central Music School and later studied with Pavel Nersessian at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. She completed her studies at the Mozarteum University Salzburg with Jacques Rouvier and was subsequently his assistant for several years.

In 2018, Zlata founded the International Festival at the Ivanovka Rachmaninov Museum and is now its director.
