Ye-Eun Choi with Dmitry Shishkin

Past events:

​Musical links between Bach, Ravel and Franck.

South Korean Ye-Eun Choi is coming to Bergen for the very first time and is looking forward to experiencing the nature that inspired one of her favourite composers, Edvard Grieg.

Choi debuted with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra as a 10-year-old. When she was 16, she was discovered by the German star violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, who has described her as 'a musician who strives to express herself in her own unique way and has a recognisable sound expression. She is one of the most talented violinists of today.'

In Bergen, Choi plays with the young Russian pianist Dmitry Shishkin. After hearing him play at the Palermo Classica Festival in 2017, she was quick to request a collaboration. Shishkin is studying at the Moscow Conservatory, in addition to his extensive concert activities worldwide.

Together they will explore the musical links between Johann Sebastian Bach, Maurice Ravel and César Franck.

'Although their music styles are different, there is a lot of musical influence between them', Choi says.
