“Lim is a one-in-a-million talent.” —Dallas Morning News

Yunchan Lim launched onto the international music stage at the age of 14, winning prizes at the Cleveland International Piano Competition for Young Artists and the Cooper International Competition. He was the youngest competitor to win both Korea’s IsangYun International Competition in 2019, at age 15, and the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2022, at age 18. Lim has performed across South Korea—including with the Korean Orchestra Festival, Korea Symphony, Suwon Philharmonic, and Busan Philharmonic Orchestras, among others—as well as in Madrid, at the invitation of the Korea Cultural Center in Spain. He also participated in the recording of “2020 Young Musicians of Korea,” organized by the Korean Broadcasting System and released that November. A native of Siheung, he currently studies at the Korea National University of Arts under Minsoo Sohn.
