PRIZE-WINNING VIOLINIST BEGINS MUSIC CLUB’S 60TH SEASON

Korean-born British violinist Joo Yeon Sir is winner of the prestigious Arts Club Karl Jenkins Classical Music Award in association with Classic FM, and the Royal College of Music's President's Award. She has performed at Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Karl Jenkins and she will give the first concert in Bideford Music Club’s 60th anniversary year.

In recital she is equally at home in solo violin repertoire (Bach, Ysaye, Kreisler and Paganini) as she is in close collaboration with piano or guitar (the latter as one half of Snowden-Sir Duo). Her collaboration with Sir Karl Jenkins has resulted in two works especially written for her unique sound and personality - Lament for the Valley (which became part of his choral work Cantata Memoria and Chatterbox (originally for violin/piano but now orchestrated for violin/string orchestra.

Also a composer, Joo Yeon won the coveted title of BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the Year in 2005 and her works have been premiered and performed at Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Cheltenham Town Hall and on BBC Radio.
Accompanying Joo Yeon on piano will be Irene Andrievsky who was born in Ulpha, Russia. Her first piano lesson was at the age of seven and she won first prize in the Ufa Piano competition at the age of 10. She went to Moscow when she was 11 to study at the Central Music School for Specially Gifted Children, a branch of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory from where she graduated with distinction and received her doctorate. She has won international piano competitions and performed in many international music festivals worldwide. She has a very wide duo accompaniment repertoire for violin, viola and cello.

This exciting concert with such fantastic artists will be held in the Bideford Methodist Church Hall on Wednesday 4th October at 7.30 pm.

Tickets are £13.50 and are available at the door, students and children are free.
