Jiyoon Lee was joint first prize winner of the 2016 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition, with jury President Nikolaj Znaider exclaiming that ‘her playing was immediately a breath of fresh air…she is a terrific violinist and I can see her going very far…’

Such praise has marked Jiyoon out as a genuine talent to watch, already being engaged as soloist with the Swedish Chamber, Seoul Philharmonic and Philharmonia orchestras.

This, her debut recording, brings the much loved Violin Concerto of Erich Korngold together with the lesser known, highly demanding work of Carl Nielsen.

It was Jiyoon’s interpretation of the latter which led Znaider to continue ‘She has lightness in her playing and yet she is a musician who takes very seriously her craft.’


Jiyoon Lee won joint first prize at the 2016 Carl Nielsen Violin Competition, so it is unsurprising, perhaps, that she should opt to record the Danish composer’s Concerto for her debut album, a wonderfully accomplished disc that also reunites her with the Odense Symphony, the orchestra that plays for the competition itself. Her interpretation is consistently fascinating, reflective yet tense, and technically secure without ever becoming self-consciously showy. ... On this showing she is a remarkable artist; and this is, without question, an exceptional debut indeed.  Tim Ashley
