‘an impressive arsenal of strengths – a range of colors that extended from a brilliant shimmer on top to an almost viola-like richness and graininess on the bottom, the ability to race from one end of the finger-board to the other with a tap dancer’s agility and precision, a dramatic flair and an inclination...’ Joan Reinthaler, The Washington Post

Violinist Ji Young Lim quickly came to the attention of the international violin scene when she took First Prize of the 2015 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. The previous year, she was awarded First Prize in the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, also winning the Mozart Prize.

Since then she has gone from strength to strength, performing as soloist with, amongst others, the, Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liege, Brussels Philharmonic, Taipei Symphony Orchestra, Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra, Luxembourg Philharmonie, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa (Japan), Philharmonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais, as well as recitals at the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Copenhagen Summer Festival, and the Gstaad Menuhin Festival 2016.

It was at the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis in 2014 that she won the special prize for the performance of a Mozart sonata, and it is to those sonatas that she has turned for her debut recording. She is joined by her compatriot Dong Hyek Lim (no relation) who is well-established as one of the finest pianists of his generation.

She plays the 1708 Stradivarius Violin “Huggins” on loan from Nippon Music Foundation as part of the prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition 2015.
