Praised by BBC Radio 3's In Tune as “Magic”, pianist Joon Yoon made his solo recital debut in Korea at the age of 12 and his concerto debut in the U.S. a year later. Led by the curious and multi-faceted mind, he explores solo, chamber, vocal, and contemporary music, performing a wide range of repertoire. In 2018, he was the unanimous winner of Guildhall School's most prestigious award, the Gold Medal, previously won by artists such as Jacqueline du Pre and Bryn Terfel, for which he was named a BBC Music Magazine rising star. He won top prizes at competitions such as the Liszt-Garrison Piano Competition in the USA and the Piano Campus International Competition in France, as well as winning awards at the Campillos International Piano Competition in Spain, and the Verona International Piano Competition in Italy.
He was a fellow of music festivals such as the Music Academy of the West, the Bowdoin International Music Festival's Kaplan Fellowship program, where he collaborated with faculty members of prestigious music institutions such as the New England Conservatory (Ayano Ninoyama), Oberlin Conservatory (Amir Eldan), and Indiana University (Kurt Muroki). Additionally, he collaborated with members of the previous and current members of the Guarneri Quartet (Peter Wiley), the Juilliard Quartet (Joel Smirnoff), the Ying Quartet (Phillip & David Ying), and New York Philharmonic Concertmaster Frank Huang. His teachers are Yong Hi Moon, Robert McDonald, Melvin Chen, Hung-Kuan Chen, and Ronan O'Hora, having studied at the Juilliard School, Yale School of Music, and Guildhall School of Music and Drama, all with full scholarships. He currently resides in Berlin, mentored by Kirill Gerstein at Hanns Eisler Hochshule für Musik Berlin as a candidate of the Konzertexamen degree, and as a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) scholar.
