She will perform Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto in G major under the baton of Maestro Osmo Vänskä.In 2021, Su Yeon Kim won the First Prize valued at over $180,000, an unprecedented total sum for the CMIM, thanks to the generosity of our partners, including the City of Montreal, the Azrieli Foundation, Steinway & Sons, Sarah Beauchamp, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Through her sophisticated, meticulous, and refined technique, she convinced the international jury of her exceptional artistry.

“I’ve been waiting to come to Montreal for so long… since 2020! I am so happy and grateful to finally visit this city that has totally changed my life. I can’t wait to meet great people and to perform Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto with the OSM, certainly my favorite concerto. I am sure that this adventure will bring me a lot of joy and experiences and will be a great source of inspiration. Through the sharing of my music, I hope to be able to express my immense gratitude for all this support.”
