The Korean Chamber Ensemble, founded in 1965 in Seoul by cellist Bong-Cho Jeon, quickly became a leading chamber group in the country. Since 1979, when Min Kim became its new director, the ensemble has been establishing a growing international reputation by embarking on numerous international tours to increasing critical and popular acclaim. It has given over 450 concerts in Korea, the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Croatia, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Hang Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, China, and Singapore. Its nine-city tour of the United States and Canada in 1995, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the group's inception, received outstanding reviews from such prestigious publications as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and the Toronto Star. In 2000, the group successfully performed in a special concert at the United Nations General Assembly Hall where it was designated as a United Nations Chamber Orchestra. In 2001, it went on its third European tour that included a concert, a first for a Korean artistic group, in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonie, home of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The critics praised the ensemble as a first-class orchestra with resilient tonal colours and precise ensemble work. In addition, the group has released 12 CDs, encompassing a wide range of repertoire, which have established a new standard of excellence in the field of classical music in Korea.
