Multi-award winning German-Korean violinist Clara-Jumi Kang is an artist of supreme sophistication, impeccable refinement and poise. Winner of the Indianapolis International Violin Competition (2020), Seoul Violin Competition (2009) and the Sendai Violin Competition (2010), she has carved an international career performing with leading orchestras and conductors across Asia and Europe. She is joined by pianist Sunwook Kim who came to international recognition when he won the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006 aged just 18. This extraordinary duo will showcase their incredible musicianship and virtuosity performing music by Beethoven, Respighi, Franck and a new Music Network commission by Irish composer John Buckley.

Ludwig van Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 1, being an early work written around the period when Beethoven studied with Haydn, is for the most part written in a classical style much like that of Mozart or Haydn. The Violin Sonata in B minor is one of Respighi’s major large-scale chamber works known for its demanding score. The Sonata in A major by César Franck is considered one of the finest sonatas ever written.

Followed by a Meet the Artist reception. All Welcome.
