Euntaek Kim


Hailed by The New York Times as “nimble” and “colorful,” Euntaek Kim is receiving worldwide recognition for his brilliant work as pianist, conductor, and composer.

Native of Incheon, South Korea, Kim moved to the U.S. at the age of 13, after sweeping all of the major piano competitions in his native country. After his move, Kim’s prowess proved unstoppable: He won prizes in numerous competitions, including The 4th International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians, was admitted to The Juilliard School College Division at the age of 16 with the “Presidential Distinction,” and was the main feature of the 2005 PBS documentary titled “Euntaek Kim and Performance of Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy.”

After receiving the Bachelor’s and the Master’s degrees at The Juilliard School, Kim continued his formal studies at Yale University as the Artist Diploma candidate, which he completed in 2013. Kim’s main instructors were Jerome Lowenthal and Boris Berman.

Kim is currently in the midst of compiling live recordings of the complete piano works by Sergei Prokofiev, which can be found on his YouTube channel (@euntaekkim).

Outside of his busy schedule with performing, composing, and teaching, Kim spends his leisure time reading, philosophizing, learning languages, lifting weights, and cooking. His wife Sara Rossi is a violist, and the two perform together frequently.
