Soyeon Lee Wins Naumburg International Piano Competition 2010

June 25, 2010


Soyeon Lee


Pianist and Naxos artist Soyeon Lee has won first prize in this year’s Naumburg International Piano Competition, which entails a cash award of $10,000 and two recitals in New York City, as well as many performances throughout the USA. The young Korean musician has already been hailed by The New York Times as a pianist with ‘a huge, richly varied sound, a lively imagination and a firm sense of style’, while The Washington Post has lauded her for her ‘stunning command of the keyboard’. Her Naxos recording of Scarlatti Sonatas has been critically acclaimed.

MusicWeb International

‘the young Korean Soyeon Lee blasts in from the outer regions to debut on the label with the Scarlatti Complete Keyboard Sonatas, Vol. 8. To consider this recording auspicious is a British understatement…Everything about this fine disc endorses it for many pleasant listenings.’
Blogcritics

‘what Lee offers here certainly makes me want to check out more of her work, either on disc or in concert.’
