Korean-born British violinist Joo Yeon Sir is a name to watch. Also a composer, Joo Yeon won the coveted title of BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the Year in 2005 and her works have been performed at major venues and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. She has received a Royal Philharmonic Society Emily Anderson Award, and been selected for Making Musicís Philip & Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists and a Tillett Trust Young Concert Artist Platform. Following studies at the Purcell School and at the Royal College of Music where she twice won the Concerto Competition, Joo Yeon was also Constant & Kit Lambert Junior Fellow 2014-2015 (awarded by The Worshipful Company of Musicians), presenting a sold-out concert series of the complete Beethovenís 10 Sonatas for Violin and Piano cycle with 10 different pianists at RCM.

Future highlights include debut appearances at the Royal Festival Hall and Wales Millennium Centre and a Young Artist Residency at St. Johnís Smith Square.The Strad magazine reviewing a Wigmore Hall concert commented: "ExuberantÖ feline and seductive, rattling off the fiendish cadenza with bravura and oodles of personality".

That personality comes to the fore in this eclectic and emotionally wide-ranging recital of suites and fantasies by a group of composers you wonít often find together on a concert programme. Brittenís youthfully precocious Suite Op.6, Milhaudís suave Le Boeuf sur la toit and Frolovís effervescent Fantasy on themes from Gershwinís Porgy & Bess rub shoulders with Schnittkeís affectionate hark back to the baroque and de Fallaís passionate Popular Spanish Songs. She plays on a Matteo Goffriller violin kindly provided by Georg von Opel. This recording was produced by Andrew Keener.
