Lim, Jennifer

Jennifer Lim presents a quiet, introspective piano album with GENUIN: just in time for Valentine's Day, her recording of Romantic works such as Liszt's Liebestraum, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Debussy's Clair de Lune is being released. Lim’s transparent playing allows these classics to radiate from within, lending them contours so that the well-known works receive a new glow. Several nocturnes and a small, fine Andantino by Brahms round off a program that, according to the interpreter's wishes, allows us to travel "into the night" – Into its magic, mysterious darkness. Having started to play the piano before the age of five, Korean-Canadian pianist Jennifer Lim made her first public appearance one year later and came into the spotlight when she captured the Grand Prize at the Korea Times National Music Competition at age eight. She studied privately with Jane Coop and Anton Kuerti in Canada, and with Peter Serkin at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she was awarded the coveted Rachmaninoff/Festorazzi prize. She then completed her master’s degree at The Juilliard School in New York City as a protégée of the legendary pianist Bella Davidovich.
