Already a prodigious success at various international competitions, the Korean pianist received the Gold Medal at the 2022 Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth at the age of 18 – the youngest ever winner. ‘Lim is a one-in-a-million talent’, wrote the Dallas Morning News, while for jury chair Marin Alsop he is ‘that rare artist who brings profound musicality and prodigious technique organically together.’
