Cellist Hee-Young Lim in Bali on 08 May

Internationally renowned classical cellist and recording star will return to the Stage of The Plumeria Grand Ballroom – The Padma Resort Legian on Monday, 08 May 2023.

 Praised by The Washington Post as “a deeply gifted musician” with “an exceptional sense of lyricism” and “near-flawless technique”, cellist Hee-Young Lim is an established musical force via a busy schedule of international performance, recording, and educating young musicians.

Hee-Young Lim

Born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1987. At 15 years of age, she was the youngest student ever accepted at the Korean National University. Immensely talented with an insatiable appetite for musical knowledge, she furthered her musical education at the New England Conservatory in Boston. After graduation, she continued her studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, and the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar.

A highly-acclaimed performer, Hee-Young is in great demand as a soloist on the international stage. Recent concerto appearances have included appearances with the Budapest Radio Symphony, Houston Symphony, KBS Symphony, Warsaw Philharmonic, and the Beijing Symphony Orchestra.

In 2018, Hee-Young released her debut album, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, for Sony Classical of French Cello Concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra. This recording was received with great critical acclaim, drawing praise for her “exceptionally refined, silkily lyrical sound” (Gramophone Magazine), and leading one reviewer to exclaim that “Lim outshines her contemporaries in the warmth of expressiveness of her tone, which is of truly rare beauty” (BBC Music Magazine). In December 2019, she released the first in a series of collaborations with pianist, Daniel Lindemann, also on Sony Classical. Her most recent recording, “Russian Cello Sonatas,” was released in June 2020 and described by The Observer as “a rising star,” praising her poise.

In 2007 Hee-Young Lim made a triumphal U.S.A debut at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

She has won numerous musical prizes, including the Washington International Competition for Strings (2009); Silver Medalist at the Houston Symphony Irma Hogg Young Artists Competition (2009), Grand Prix at the Normandy International Forum (France), and won third prize at the Witold Lutosławski International Cello Competition in Warsaw.

Hee-Young Lim was named principal solo cellist of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra (2015), under musical director Canadian Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

In September 2018, Lim relocated to Beijing, to take up her new appointment as a Professor of Cello with the Beijing Central Conservatory, the first Korean cellist named to the Beijing faculty.

In December 2018, South Korea’s Ministry of Culture awarded Hee-Young a Prime Minister’s Commendation.
