ArtistsSoo Hyun Park (violin)
Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz
Born in Seoul in 1989, Soo-Hyun Park began playing the violin at the age of seven. Since 1999 she has attended the masterclasses of Dora Schwarzberg at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna, where she also enjoys teaching.
Her highly virtuosic programme includes Wieniawski’s passionate first concerto and a work once championed by Jascha Heifetz, the concerto by Jules Conus. Conus studied under Arensky and Taneyev and was a close friend of Rachmaninov from student days and through both composers’ time in the USA. Conus’s son married Rachmaninov’s daughter. His one major work is this highly effective and well-constructed showpiece for the violin.
Vieuxtemps’ 'Fantasia appassionata' is a miniature concerto, with a passionate central movement and a fiendishly challenging ‘salterella’ finale. The composer was famous for his technical dexterity, and this work gives some idea of how phenomenal his technique must have been.
Soo-Hyun has performed in Europe as well as China and Korea. She has performed at the Mozartsaal of the Vienna Konzerthaus and in Tianjin with the city’s symphony orchestra in a concert broadcast live on both radio and television.
