"Christopher Park is a pianist who captivates with his fascinating technical mastery, astounding musical maturity, and a particularly intense performance style” – this was the explanation given by the jury by the Stiftung Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival upon awarding Christopher Park the renowned Leonard Bernstein Award 2014.
Numerous important ensembles have engaged Park, including the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Spanish National Orchestra, to name but a few. Park has worked with conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach and Jukka-Pekka Saraste. He has given concerts in Europe, Asia, America and New Zealand. Park has been chosen as “Rising Star” by the ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation). Therefore he debuted in Europe’s renowned concert halls in London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisboa, and others. Furthermore, he is passionately involved in chamber music. He made his début in the Brahms Saal of the Vienna Musikverein at the end of 2014 with the Küchl Quartet. Since 2021, Park holds a professorship at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo.
