Joyce Yang

Biography

Born: 1986   Country: South Korea   Period: 21st Century
Ms. Yang came to international attention in 2005 when she became the Silver Medalist of the 12th Van Cliburn International Competition. As the youngest contestant, she swept two additional awards as an all-around winner, receiving the Steven De Groote Memorial Award for Best Performance of Chamber Music with the Takŕcs Quartet, and the Beverley Taylor Smith Award for Best Performance of a New Work. In 2010 she was awarded an Avery Fisher Career Read more Grant, one of the most prestigious prizes in classical music.

Since her spectacular finish, Ms. Yang has flourished into an “astonishing artist” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), and she is continually re-engaged by orchestras across the U.S. and abroad. She has performed with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and BBC Philharmonic, among many others, working with such renowned conductors as Edo de Waart, Lorin Maazel, James Conlon, Leonard Slatkin, David Robertson, and Bramwell Tovey. In recital, Ms. Yang has appeared at New York’s Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Chicago’s Symphony Hall, and Zurich’s Tonhalle.
