We are very pleased to welcome Jeongro Park to the Musikstudio:
Born in Busan, Korea, the pianist began his music studies in 2007 at Hanyang University in Seoul in the class of Prof. Yongkyu Lee and Eunsoo Son. In addition to his award in 2020 as the best song pianist in the internal song duo competition of the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne, he is a laureate of the 45th ‘Palma d’Oro’ International Competition (1st prize and special prize) in Italy as well as the Karl-Robert Kreiten Competition (3rd prize). In 2021 he also won the 5th prize at the ‘Lyon Intenational Piano Competition’, the 2nd prize and the audience prize at the ‘Val tidone Competition’ (the 1st prize was not awarded), the 1st prize at the Euregio Piano Award, the 2nd prize at the Valsesia Piano Competition and in 2022 the 1st prize and the audience prize at the ‘Rospigliosi Intenational Piano Competition’.
Already during his studies Jeongro Park leads a very active concert life, which has led him to numerous stages in South Korea and Europe, both as a soloist and as a chamber pianist. Among others, his two-time participation in the Bechstein Young Professionals 2018 and 2020 should be highlighted. Among the orchestras he has collaborated with as a soloist are the Częstochowa Philharmonic Orchestra, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, the Western Symphony Orchestra, the Orfeo Stillo Orchestra and the Citta di Grosetto Orchestra. Furthermore, he participated in the Seoul Philharmonic Chamber Music Series as both a chamber musician and soloist.
Jeongro Park completed his studies in both piano solo and song interpretation at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne, under the direction of Prof. Sheila Arnold and Prof. Stefan Irmer. Currently, he is completing the postgraduate course in concert examinations in song interpretation under Prof. Stefan Irmer at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne, and the postgraduate course in solo piano under Prof. Bernd Goetzke at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien, Hannover.
For this concert Jeongro Park has prepared a wonderfully classical to romantic as well as virtuoso program with works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Frédéric Chopin and Enrique Granados.
At the same time this concert is also the prelude for the further highlight of this day: the artist Julia Dauksza celebrates her vernissage with us, which you should not miss! More information about the vernissage will follow soon.
