Sunwook Kim came to international recognition when he won the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006, aged just 18, becoming the competition’s youngest winner for 40 years, as well as its first Asian winner. He has established a reputation as one of the finest pianists of his generation, appearing as a concerto soloist in the subscription series of some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, Concertgebouw Orchestra, Radio‐France Philharmonic, NHK Symphony, Hallé Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (for his BBC Proms debut in Summer 2014) and many more.

As a recitalist, Sunwook Kim is a regular guest at Salle Pleyel and Philharmonie in Paris, and has also made noted appearances at the Wigmore Hall, the London International Piano Series (Queen Elizabeth Hall), Teatro Colon Buenos Aires, Kioi Hall in Tokyo, Symphony Hall Osaka, Seoul Arts Centre, Brussels Klara Festival, Beethoven‐Haus Bonn, Klavier‐Festival Ruhr and Mecklenburg‐Vorpommern Festspiele.

Besides Leeds, international awards include the first prize at the 2004 Ettlingen Competition (Germany) and the 2005 Clara Haskil Competition (Switzerland). In 2013, Sunwook was selected by the Beethoven‐Haus Bonn to become the first beneficiary of its new Mentoring Programme, a status which grants him exclusive access to the house’s unique collections and resources.
