DongKyu Kim (First Prize 2010 San Marino International Piano Competition)
Complementing the more familiar piano sonatas, Prokofiev's shorter but by no means slighter piano works span his entire career, from the precociously brilliant Four Etudes Op 2 and Four Pieces Op 3, via the neo-classical Four Pieces Op 32, the powerfully trenchant Sonatinas Op 54 and the colourful Fifth Sonata, to his final unfinished Tenth Sonata. One of the most exciting performers of his generation, DongKyu Kim won first prize at the 2010 San Marino International Competition and the highest award at the 2009 International Jeunesses Musicales Competition Belgrade.
