Henry Kramer Opens Chamber Music Series in Tsawwassen

Queen Elisabeth Competition Prize Winner to perform Oct. 14
VCMS October concert
Pianist Henry Kramer, violinist Yoojin Jang and cellist Matthew Zalkind will perform on Oct. 14 at the South Delta Baptist Church.

Pianist Henry Kramer is one of the most exciting American musicians of his generation.

His ease with the piano has been praised by La Presse as “technically effortless”, and “astonishingly confident” by The Cleveland Classical Review.

In 2016, he garnered international recognition with a second prize win at the Queen Elisabeth competition in Brussels – one of the most prestigious competitions in the world. Kramer will be joined by two other award-winning musicians to perform piano trios by Schubert, Ravel, and Mendelssohn at the Vancouver Chamber Music Society’s season premiere at the South Delta Baptist Church on Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Violinist Yoojin Jang has likewise been marvelled as “a performer without fear or technical limitation” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Her victories at the 2017 Concert Artists Guild Competition and first prize at the 2016 Sendai International Music Competition in Japan have resulted in a busy itinerary of international recital and concerto engagements.

Topping off the trio is cellist Matthew Zalkind, first prize winner of the Washington International Competition, as well as top prize winner in the Beijing International Cello competition and Korea’s Isang Yun Gyeongnam International Competition. He was praised for his “impressive refinement, eloquent phrasing, and singing tone” by The New York Times.
