Winner of the 2019 Michael Hill International Violin Competition Anna Im and beloved New Zealand pianist Stephen De Pledge come together for a concert of works by Mozart, Beethoven, Wieniawski and Clara Schumann. This is a celebration of the beauty of the violin and piano, and a chance to support exciting young talent.
Anna Im started playing the violin aged six and just two years later was invited to perform for the Thai Royal Family. After winning various competitions in Korea, Anna was awarded a full scholarship by the Korean Government to study at the Korean National Institute for the Gifted in Arts, and in 2012 she received a scholarship to study at the Millfield senior school in the UK.
Anna has studied with Shmuel Ashkenasi and Aaron Rosand at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia since 2014, and has maintained her tutelage with So-ock Kim since 2012. She has been kindly loaned instruments for her performances from the Beares International Violin Society.
Presented in partnership with the Michael Hill International Violin Competition.
