Korean pianist Tomoki Park was born in Yokohama, Japan. He has performed worldwide as a soloist and chamber musician, in venues including the Wigmore Hall (London), Suntory Hall and Opera City (Tokyo), and Lincoln Center (New York). Praised by the Boston Globe as a “standout”, his rendition of Oliver Knussen’s piano music was noted as “performed sensitivelyºand among the highlights” by the New York Times.
A graduate of the Bard Conservatory, where he studied with Peter Serkin, Tomoki is currently receiving further instructions from András Schiff in Berlin and is a student at the International Piano Academy Lake Como. He has appeared in festivals such as Marlboro, Tanglewood, and Kronberg, and has given performances at Portrait Pierre Boulez (Geneva), Mozarteum (Salzburg), and Tongyeoung Concert Hall in Korea. With Peter Serkin and the Sacramento Philharmonic, he has performed J.S. Bach and Takemitsu Double Piano Concertos. He co-directed New York»s Andrew Park Foundation Composition Award, which commissioned new pieces inspired by Korean poetry and court music. Last season in Beethovenhaus Bonn, he premiered works by Taiwanese composers, organized as part of the Ostasien-Institut.
Tomoki moved to the United Kingdom at age 11 to study piano with Tessa Nicholson and composition with Dai Fujikura, Haris Kittos, and Jonathan Cole at the Purcell School. He continued his studies in Germany with Pascal Devoyon and Rikako Murata (University of the Arts, Berlin), and with Ueli Wiget, as a member of the Ensemble Modern Academy, Frankfurt (19-20).
