List

The world-class ‘Royal Danish Orchestra’ meets the rising star pianist Yekwon Sunwoo!

The Royal Danish Orchestra, which follows the Royal Court Trumpet Corps that was founded in 1448, is the oldest orchestra in the world with a history of 570 years. The orchestra is well-known for its unique timbre, with an unrivaled collection of the very best Italian string instruments.
The orchestra mainly performs operas and ballets at the Royal Danish Theatre, one of the most notable of its kind in Northern Europe, working with great composers and conductors such as Richard Strauss, Stravinsky, Bernstein, Celibidache, and Barenboim.
Each year the orchestra is invited to many overseas tours and international festivals, and ‘The Copenhagen Ring’ and Wagner’s ‘Tannhauser’ are considered as some of their greatest works.

PIANIST YEKWON SUNWOO

Gold medalist of the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, 30-years-old pianist Yekwon Sunwoo has been hailed for “his total command over the instrument and its expressiveness (San Francisco Examiner)”. A powerful and virtuosic performer, he also, in his own words, “strives to reach for the truth and pure beauty in music,” and hopes to convey those fundamental emotions to audiences.

Born in Anyang, South Korea, Mr. Sunwoo began learning piano at the age of 8. He gave both his recital and orchestra debuts in 2004 in Seoul before moving to the United States in 2005 to study under Seymour Lipkin at the Curtis Institute of Music. He earned his bachelor’s degree there, his master’s at The Juilliard School with Robert McDonald, and his artist diploma at the Mannes School of Music with Richard Goode. He currently studies under Bernd Goetzke in Hannover. Mr. Sunwoo credits each for their guidance in his artistic development and approach and honored the late Mr. Lipkin by performing his cadenza during his Semifinal Round performance of the Mozart Piano Concerto in C Major, K. 467.

The first Korean to win the gold medal of the Cliburn, Mr. Sunwoo launches his debut season in 2017–2018 with invitations to the Aspen, Grand Teton, and Duszniki International Music Festivals. Recitals will take him to Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and Vancouver, and he undertakes a nine-city tour of the United States with the National Orchestra of Cuba in the spring. In Europe, Mr. Sunwoo makes his United Kingdom concerto debut with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Jose Luis Gomez, appears in the first full season at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and performs in Brussels, Copenhagen, Istanbul, Madrid, Helsingborg, and across Germany. His appearances in Asia include those in Beirut, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and across South Korea.

Record label Decca Gold released Cliburn Gold 2017 two weeks after his Cliburn won, which includes his award-winning performances of Ravel’s La valse and Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Sonata. The album ranked on the first of the Traditional Classical Album Billboard charts.

In previous seasons, Mr. Sunwoo has performed as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under Marin Alsop, The Juilliard Orchestra with Itzhak Perlman at Avery Fisher Hall, Houston Symphony Orchestra with James Feddeck, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra with Leonard Slatkin and Nicholas McGegan, National Orchestra of Belgium, Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra, and others. He has appeared in recital in Hamarikyu Asahi Hall in Tokyo, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall in London, Radio France and Salle Cortot in Paris, Kumho Art Hall in Seoul, and throughout South Korea, Germany, Switzerland, Prague, and Morocco.

An avid chamber musician, his partners have included the Jerusalem and Brentano String Quartets, violinists Benjamin Beilman and Ida Kafavian, cellists Edgar Moreau, Gary Hoffman, and Peter Wiley, and pianist Anne- Marie McDermott. He has toured Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Panama with the Kumho Asiana Cultural Foundation, performed for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Inside Chamber Music Lectures, and been invited to the Summit Music, Bowdoin International, and Toronto Summer Music Festivals.

In addition to the Cliburn gold medal, Mr. Sunwoo has won the first prize at the International German Piano Award in 2015 in Frankfurt and the Vendome Prize in 2014 which held at the Verbier Festival. Moreover, he won the Sendai International Music Competition in 2013 and the William Kapell International Piano Competition in 2012 as well.

The Royal Danish Orchestra

The story of the Royal Danish Orchestra, often called the oldest orchestra in the world, is inextricably bound up with the history of Denmark as a cultural nation. Originally founded as a trumpeter corps for King Christian I of Denmark (1448-1481), the orchestra came to serve the succeeding monarchs of Denmark, lending musical pomp and circumstance to the sovereign at public events of political significance. During the course of the centuries, the orchestra managed to evolve from a trumpeter corps into a nuanced renaissance orchestra and finally into a modern symphony orchestra in its own right. The orchestra endured after the absolute monarchy was abolished in Denmark in 1849: Maintaining its royal name, the orchestra was handed over to the state. The orchestra remains highly regarded as a cultural institution.

Apart from their invaluable contribution at opera, ballet, and theatre performances at The Royal Danish Theatre, The Royal Danish Orchestra has performed public symphonic concerts since the 1880s. The Royal Danish Orchestra has also enjoyed great success as a touring orchestra, and in 2015 an internationally acclaimed tour them to the Berlin Music Festival and Birmingham Concert Hall, performing a program of Arnold Schönberg’s Erwartung as well as works by two prominent Danish composers; Carl Nielsen (1865-1931), and Per Nørgård (b. 1932).The orchestra regularly attracts renowned conductors and composers: Jean Sibelius, Leopold Stokowksi, Herbert von Karajan, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Erich Kleiber, and Leonoard Bernstein all conducted The Royal Danish Orchestra during the 20th century. In recent years, besides their collaboration with Hartmut Haenchen, the orchestra has worked with prominent conductors such as Mariss Jansons, Michail Jurowski, Bertrand de Billy as well as Alexander Vedernikov, the orchestra’s incoming chief conductor.
