Kyung-Wha Chung
In a career that has spanned more than 40 years, Kyung‐Wha Chung has been one of the most sought‐after musicians on the international stage. She has earned recognition worldwide as a performing artist of the very highest stature: in 1972 the South Korean government awarded her with its highest honour, the Medal of Civil Merit; and she has been cited by The Sunday Times of London as one of the most important contributors to the British cultural scene. The depth of her musicianship, commitment and passion for her art characterize each performance and recording. After a seven-year hiatus due to an injury, she resumed her performing career in 2011 and proved in her recital in Seoul that she has grown further and deeper as a consummate artist and brought out passionate, overflowing response from her fans. She has scheduled to perform and record six Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin in 2012/13 and begun her world tour that take her to Japan in June 2013, the United States in September 2013, China in October 2013, Europe in Spring/Fall 2014.


Kevin Kenner
The year 1990 was a milestone for Kevin Kenner whose artistry was recognized throughout the world by three prestigious awards: the top prize at the International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw (together with the Peoples' Prize and the prize for the best performance of a polonaise), the recipient of the Terence Judd Award in London, and the bronze medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (together with the prize for the best performance of a Russian work). In the years leading up to those remarkable accomplishments, he won prizes at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth in 1989 and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition in Salt Lake City in 1988.

Kenner has performed as soloist with world-class orchestras including Hallé Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Belgian Radio and Television Philharmonic Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, and in the United States with the principal orchestras of San Francisco, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Kansas City, New Jersey, Rochester, Baltimore, St. Paul and many others. He has been invited to work with renowned conductors, including Sir Charles Groves, Andrew Davis, Hans Vonk, Stanisław Skrowaczewski, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Kazimierz Kord, Jirí Belohlávek and Antoni Wit.
