One thought on “Julie Park wins Sir Karl Jenkins Music Award

  1. Thanks for spotting this Andrew. I had completely missed the news.

    I always like it when musicians pick up neglected British music: I see from the Classic FM article that in the award finals she played a movement of a York Bowen sonata, and as I write this I’m listening to her playing Frank Bridge at the Home Theatre concert. Joo Yeon is another musician who’s happy to play British music: the first time I went to hear her live she was playing the Vaughan Williams sonata, which you hardly ever hear played.
