VIOLIN 2019 EDITION
Biography 2019: “What’s inspiring with the violin, is that I can express so many emotions, and make it sing,” says Youjin Lee. “Music is a universal language. If I weren’t a violinist, I think I would be a painter. Painting does not need language or explanations, just like music. Any negative aspects to music? I don’t see any –the bad becomes the good. The hours of mind-numbing practice translates to time onstage. You enjoy the moment and forget everything else.” Youjin is studying at the Curtis Institute with Ida Kavafian and Pamela Frank, and has given many concerts in the United-States, Japan and Korea. She was awarded Second Prize at the Seoul International Violin Competition and First Prize at the Washington International String Competition. She will be performing at the CMIM on a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin made in 1822.
