International competition-winning violinist Danbi Um joins with acclaimed pianist Amy Yang to present an evening of inspired music-making. Hear these prize-winning musicians up close in an intimate setting, just as chamber music was intended.
Praised by The Strad as an “utterly dazzling” artist, with “a marvelous show of superb technique” and “mesmerizing grace” (New York Classical Review), violinist Danbi Um captivates audiences with her virtuosity, individual sound, and interpretive sensitivity. A Menuhin International Violin Competition Silver Medalist, she showcases her artistry in concertos, chamber music, and recitals.
Praised by the Washington Post as a “jaw-dropping pianist who steals the show…with effortless finesse,” pianist Amy Yang has collaborated with Patricia Kopatchinskaya, Richard Goode, Ida Kavafian, Roberto Díaz; members of the Guarneri String Quartet and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra; and the Dover, Jasper, and Aizuri string quartets.
