Wellspring Theater, Epic Center

HJ Lim burst onto the international music scene nearly three years ago when a recital video of her performing Rachmaninov and Chopin was uploaded to YouTube. The unusual online traffic it created drew the attention of audiences around the world. Since then the 24-year-old signed on with EMI Classics and recently released a recording of the complete Beethoven Sonatas.

Lim began her musical studies at the age of three in her native Korea; she left at 12 to study piano in France at the Conservatoire National Région de Compiègne. In 2006, she graduated with First Prize and highest distinctions from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris. Lim currently resides in Switzerland.
