Event news: Sunwook Kim performs Beethoven’s last sonatas

Sunwook Kim

Wednesday 23 November 8.00 pm
St John’s, Spencer Hill SW19 4NZ

Sun-Wook Kim



BEETHOVEN Sonata in E major, op. 109
BEETHOVEN Sonata in A flat major, op. 110

22-year old Korean pianist Sunwook Kim came to international recognition when he won the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006: the competition’s youngest winner for 40 years, as well as its first Asian winner.

“The major discovery of this concert was the extraordinary young Korean pianist Sunwook Kim. His technique and the extensive range of his tone colours allowed him to grasp every single nuance in the score with poise and natural ease.” ResMusica, Brussels

“Quite a superb display and as well as a dazzling technique, he showed an interpretation of maturity and conviction.” Dundee Courier

“Kim’s lightness of touch and finesse never less than compelling.” Classicalsource
