Yunchan Lim performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22
2022 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition
Thank you for your understanding.
At just 18 years of age, Yunchan Lim of South Korea became the youngest ever pianist to win the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2022. Relive every note of his path to victory now on medici.tv!
The second semifinal round required every pianist to perform a Mozart concerto, and Lim's choice was the thoroughly delightful Piano Concerto No. 22 in E-flat Major, one of the most deceptively difficult of the Austrian genius's piano works. Lim, wrote Jed Distler for Gramophone, "invested each note and phrase with meaning, expression and specificity. Everything he touched sounded as natural as breathing, without any contrivance or mannerism, and no dead spots whatsoever." We couldn't agree more.
