Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here, in a bold and controversial new recording project, the 24 year-old H. J. Lim proves that she is ready now. Lim, who has already performed the Beethoven sonatas in a critically acclaimed 8-day concert series in France, Germany and Japan, releases the complete sonatas in four 2-CD sets throughout 2012. Charismatic, engaging and adventurous, pianist HJ Lim captivates her audience with style, intensity and a natural flair for the theatrical whilst playing and interpreting piano repertoire with genuine brilliance. That same strength, intelligence and assuredness that led her to move on her own – at 12 years old – from South Korea to study piano in France is evident in her now: a confident, bold and brilliant 24 year old phenomenon.
