The 2015 Premio Paganini International Violin Competition, held in Genoa, Italy, produced a first prize for the first time in nine years – and the winner was a young Korean violinist called In Mo Yang. In addition to the First Prize, Yang also received the prizes for the youngest finalist at the age of 20, for the best interpretation of the contemporary original piece, and for the performance most appreciated by the audience; there was no doubt that a new star had been born. Since the competition, Yang’s inbox has been flooded with invitations from leading concert halls and companies. Amidst such flurry of concerts and engagements, Yang also managed to complete a Bachelor of Music degree course at the New England Conservatory of Music.
Now selected for the prestigious Artist Diploma program at the New England Conservatory, Yang looks forward to offering more concerts in Korea. He has been selected for 2018 Artist Residency at Kumho Art Hall andreleased his debut album in November. Now only in his mid-20s, this rising young star of the classical music world is sure to surprise the world yet more with his passion and talent.
