HE IS DEFINITELY A MUSICIAN TO BE HEARD
 Richard Goode/pianist,
"

His excellent command of the instrument is put at the service of a fine sensibility and a quite personal voice. In addition, he plays with a certain rhythmic freedom and an individual style I find very refreshing. He is definitely a musician to be heard

HYUNG-KI JOO IS THE PERFECT CHAMBER-MUSIC PIANIST
 The Classical Source,
"

Hyung-ki Joo is the perfect chamber-music pianist, one who is perfectly balanced with his colleagues and who has an imaginative response to the music he plays without drawing attention to himself.
