Jongmin Park

Jongmin Park, winner of the Song Prize at Cardiff Singer of the World 2015, makes his Wigmore Hall debut with works ideally matched to the power and richness of his sonorous bass voice.

The South Korean artist charts the turbulent emotional course of Schumann’s Dichterliebe, in its original version of 20 songs, before exploring other vibrant musical destinations.

Jongmin Park is currently a member of the ensemble at the Vienna State Opera, where in the 2016-17 season he stars in operas such as La Boheme, Macbeth, Il Trovatore, Don Giovanni, Lady Macbeth of Mtensk, Das Rheingold, Die Walkure and Don Carlo.

Fanny Mendelssohn (1805-1847): Song without words Op. 8 No. 3
Hyo Gun Kim (김효근, 1960-): 눈 (Snow)
Soon-ae Kim (김순애, 1920-2007): 그대 있음에 (Because you are here)
