[Hyunah Yu]

South Korean-born American soprano Hyunah Yu was a prizewinner at the 1999 Naumburg Competition and a finalist in both the Dutch International Vocal and Concert Artist Guild competitions. She also received the coveted Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award upon the nomination of pianist Mitsuko Uchida. Known particularly for her performances of the music of Bach, Hyunah appears regularly with esteemed conductors such as Valery Gergiev, David Zinman, Jaime Laredo, and Blanche Moyse; at well-known opera houses and festivals, and with orchestras throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. A highlight of her career has been her title role in Mozart’s Zaide in New York, London, and Vienna under the direction of Peter Sellars, conducted by Louis Langrée. She is also an avid chamber musician and recitalist. Her debut CD on EMI was released in 2007, and of her two solo recitals recorded and broadcast for the BBC Voices program, one was named Radio 3’s Best of 2004. The Washington Post wrote that she was “absolutely captivating...with exceptional style and effortless lyrical grace. The audience, to judge by the general swooning, was helplessly in love by the end.”
