Tomoki Park, piano

Korean pianist Tomoki Park was born in Yokohama, Japan. His performances have been described as a “standout” by the Boston Globe, as well as by the New York Times as “among the highlights…and played sensitively”. He has performed worldwide in venues including Philharmonie Berlin, Wigmore Hall, Tokyo Suntory Hall, and Tongyeong Concert Hall, Korea.

As a recitalist and chamber musician, he has appeared in the Rheingau Music Festival, Kronberg Academy Festival, Oxford Piano Festival, Musikfest Stuttgart, and spent summers at Tanglewood Music Center. Among his most meaningful collaborations were his performances with Peter Serkin of the J.S. Bach and Takemitsu Double Piano Concertos with the Sacramento Philharmonic, and of Adolf Busch’s two-piano music at the Marlboro Music Festival.

Tomoki has premiered over 50 new works in diverse settings, including as a member of the Ensemble Modern Academy in Frankfurt (‘19-‘20), and as part of Ostasien-Institut’s program in Beethoven Haus Bonn. He has worked with composers such as Dai Fujikura, Rebecca Saunders, George Benjamin, Michael Cohen-Weissert, and Heinz Holliger.

In the upcoming season, he will be performing solo recitals in venues including Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Konzerthaus Berlin, and Klavierfestival Ruhr, as part of “Building Bridges”, a series curated by Sir András Schiff. For these recitals, he will be premiering a new work written for him by American composer Katherine Balch.

His musical education began in England at age 11, studying piano with Tessa Nicholson at the Purcell School, while also pursuing composition. He continued his studies at the University of the Arts, Berlin, with Pascal Devoyon, at Bard Conservatory in New York with Peter Serkin, and later at Lake Como Piano Academy. Tomoki is currently based in Berlin, where he studies with Sir András Schiff.
