Esther Yoo launches her residency with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performing Sibelius’s Violin Concerto with the orchestra and Michał Nesterowicz at Cadogan Hall (Wednesday 2 May 2018) and G Live, Guildford (Thursday 3 May 2018). On Saturday 5 May, Esther will perform Glazunov’s Violin Concerto in A minor as part of both her RPO residency and her Cambridge Corn Exchange residency.
Esther Yoo is the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s first ever Artist in Residence which she describes as a great honour. “I am delighted to have the chance to work with this wonderful international orchestra,” comments Esther. “I believe our partnership will be very exciting. It carries a responsibility for me to connect with audiences in London and elsewhere in the UK, not just to give great concerts but to reach out through activities beyond the concert hall.”
Attracting and developing new audiences is very important to Esther. She remarks that “the RPO is committed to broadening its audience and that is a mission that we share together. I think there are many ways that we can attract new audiences, so I look forward to collaborating with the orchestra as we reach out to them.”
Esther Yoo’s future RPO Artist Residency plans include Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1 in London and Hull with Clemens Schuldt (September 2018) and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in Cadogan Hall with Michele Mariotti (November 2018), as well as innovative ideas for education projects.
