Talented Korean pianist Min Jung Baek will be performing at the AUA Language Center Auditorium on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Presented by D & M Studios. The young pianist will perform Bach, Scarlatti, Chopin and Liszt.

"You have to remember this young pianist's name, Min-Jung Baek. She will become a successful pianist." said David Dubal, a member of the faculty of The Juilliard School.

Born in Pusan, South Korea in 1984, Min Jung Baek is currently studying at Accademia Pianistica Internazionale "Incontri col maestro" di Imola with Leonid Margarius, a pupil of Regina Horowitz, who was the sister of Vladimir Horowitz, and Piero Rattalino. After graduating from Seoul Arts High School with a high distinction in 2004, she was awarded the prestigious Mannes Presidential Scholarship for her further studies at Mannes College of Music in New York City with the renowned American Pianist, Jerome Rose.

Min Jung Baek started studying the piano at the age of four, and showed her talent immediately at her first competition when aged only five. She has won more than fifty times in Korean National Competitions, and the 2006 Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition, in Catania, Italy, which provided her with concerts playing Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No.1, No.2 and Paganini Rhapsody all in one concert in the Ukraine and Italy in 2007 and in Russia and Zurich.

Since then, her natural sensitivity, expressive playing and strong charisma have led her to perform extensively throughout the USA (Steinway Hall in NYC, Carnegie Weill Recital Hall, Mannes Concert Hall, Kimbell Art Museum in Fortworth, Mixon Hall in Cleveland, Notre Shore Center for performing Arts). She has frequently played in Italy, Ukraine, as well as in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Japan, the UK, Romania, Spain and Korea.

In 1999, she collaborated with the famous French pianist, Richard Clayderman in the '99 Richard Clayderman et Son Orchestra Korea Tour as a competition winner and the concerts were sold out.

She has performed at various music festivals including the 1999 Russian Glinka Music Festival and the International Keyboard Festival and Institute in NY 2005 the Beethoven Institute at Mannes and 2005 TCU/Cliburn Piano institute in Fort Worth, where she was filmed for a documentary on Pianist Menahem Pressler.
