Composer, Pianist, Conductor, Narrator, Workshops, Broadening the horizons of Classical Music in the 21st Century, Creator of shows mixing music with comedy and theatre, Joo-ish half of the duo Igudesman & Joo
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."
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"

Sensitivity and virtuosity aplomb"
I find him an unusual type of talent who does not belong to the endless row of successful or unsuccessful 'piano key hunters'."
I wanted a true virtuoso, someone who knows how to express all the nuances, who intuitively understands all the dynamics, and who can deliver a bravura performance."
Joo is passionate about teaching and has developed a unique style of workshop designed for young musicians encouraging them to think and perform "Beyond the Practice Room".
Stunning to hear in concert- he is a virtuoso"
Joo brought a freshness of approach…That joy in communication is all too rare in professional music-making."
