Pianist SooJin Anjou graduated from the Juilliard School in 2002 as the only person ever to win both of Juilliard’s undergraduate commencement prizes for achievement in music and the liberal arts. A native of South Korea, Ms. Anjou spent her formative years in the United States, making her Boston Symphony Orchestra debut at 16 with Prokofiev’s 'Piano Concerto No. 3'. She became known in Europe after winning a prize at the Robert Schumann Competition in Germany. Anjou completed her studies at the University of Arts Berlin, with a minor in harpsichord and fortepiano.
Her broad repertoire includes more than 20 concertos, ranging from Bach to Berio, as well as the complete works of Ravel and the complete Transcendental Etudes
of Liszt. She is an avid performer of contemporary music, and composers have been entrusting their work to her since she was 15.
In 2010 she premiered new works by four composers to commemorate the bicentennial of the births of Schumann and Chopin. Currently she is part of the ensemble performing Morton Subotnick’s new chamber opera 'Jacob’s Room' worldwide.
