This Sunday, Jongmin Park makes his Wigmore Hall debut with his voice of “profound depth, beautiful timbre and expressive power”.
A committed recitalist, having won the Song Prize at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World in 2015, Jongmin continues his partnership with pianist Simon Lepper in a programme featuring Schumann’s Dichterliebe in its original version of twenty lieder, as well as song repertoire from his native South Korea.
Jongmin arrives in London from the Wiener Staatsoper, fresh from acclaimed debuts as Fasolt in Das Rheingold and Hunding in Die Walküre. He continues his trip to the UK with an appearance at The Grange Festival in Verdi’s Requiem with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (9 June).
Future seasons include appearances in Rusalka, Don Carlos, Il trovatore and I puritani, as well as debuts at Bergen Nasjonale Opera and The Dallas Opera.
Jongmin performs at Wigmore Hall on Sunday 4 June. More information can be found on the hall’s website.
