“I’m especially looking forward to coming back to Wigmore Hall in November as it will be the first time I’ve performed with Jae Hong Park in the UK,” notes Esther Yoo. “He’s an exciting young pianist. We met in Korea, where I’ve spent a lot of time in the past two years. We got together to play through some repertoire, and there was something about his energy, musicality and sensibility that really spoke to me. I was impressed by his maturity and deep reflection on music, so we decided to play some recitals together. We will perform not only at the Wigmore but also in Korea and elsewhere. It’s a new musical relationship that I’m really excited about.”

Esther Yoo will return to Wigmore Hall for a solo recital at Wigmore Hall on July 3, 2024. Their program includes Debussy, Grieg, Rachmaninov, and Vieuxtemps.
