Korea Foundation Holds Virtual Concert Series with Classical Musicians from Korea, France
Theo Fouchenneret, pianist, from France

Under the theme “Reconnecting in Harmony” of the Korea Foundation Virtual Concert Series, three artists from Korea and France performed musical pieces from classical music on Sept. 16, 2021.

Christine J. Lee, cellist, and Jaewon Kim, violinist, from Korea and Theo Fouchenneret, pianist, from France performed classical music of Alfredo Piatti, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Gabriel Faure.

Christine J. Lee Cellist

Praised for her inexhaustible curiosity, Christine J. Lee is one of the most versatile artists of her generation who performs extensively as a soloist and chamber musicians.

She is the first prizewinner of the International Isang Yun Competition and a top laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition, to name but two of her numerous competition victories.

Her debut album, Voyage, was released in May 2021.

Christine began playing the cello at the age of seven, and she made her debut with the Seoul Philharmonic only two years later.

She was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music at the age of 10.

She is an artist-in-residence at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth where she works closely with Gary Hoffman and Jeroen Rauling.

Furthermore, she is pursuing an Advanced Performance Diploma under the guidance of Christoph Richter at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

Jaewon Kim Violinist

South Korean violinist Jaewon Kim was chosen as a 2nd Concertmaster of Tonhalle Orchester Zurich at the age of 24.

She was an artist-in-residence of the Foundation of the Banque Populaire in France from 2017 to 2019, and participated in the academy program of the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra and l’Opera de Paris during her studies in Paris.

She won main awards and special prizes at many international violin competitions such as Lipizer in Italy, Brahms in Austria, Schoenfeld in Hongkong, Sofia Young Virtuoso in Bulgaria, and Kloster Schontal in Germany.

She studied with NamYun Kim in Seoul at the Korea National University of Arts and completed her master’s degree and artist diploma in Paris at the Conservatoire National Superrieur de Musique de Paris (CNSMDP) with Svetlin Roussev and Ronald Daugareil.

She is currently the assistant artistic director of the Busan Classic Music Festival.

Theo Fouchenneret Pianist

Theo Fouchenneret was awarded the 1st Prize at the Geneva International Piano Competition in November 2018.

The sensibility and poetry of this young pianist, as well as the maturity of his interpretations, distinguish him from other pianists of his generation.

In 2013, he was awarded the 1st Prize during the Gabriel Faure International Piano Competition, giving him the opportunity to perform repertoire that is dear to him.

The year 2018 was a turning point in the young pianist’s career.

A few months before triumphing at the Geneva Competition, he was awarded the 1st Prize, as well as five special prizes during the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition with the Messiaen Trio.
