About the artists
Duo Amadeae was formed in 2014 by sister pianists Esther and Sun-A Park. The sisters have broad musical interests, frequently moving between different classical forms, including concerti, chamber music, and solo pieces.
The winner of the 2016 Chicago International Duo Piano Competition, Duo Amadeae has performed around the world at venues including Lincoln Center in New York City, Het Concertgebouw in the Netherlands, the Slovak Philharmonic in Slovakia, the National Concert Hall in Ireland, the Tel Aviv Museum of Arts in Israel, the Sendai Cultural Center in Japan, and the Miguel Delibes Cultural Center in Spain.
Both Esther and Sun-A have received international recognition in competitions, including first prizes at the 52nd and 61st Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Competition, and top prizes at the 5th International Sendai Music Competition, the Jose Roca Piano Competition, the 58th Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition, the Paderewski Internatonal Piano Competition, and the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition.
As individual performers, the Park sisters have played recitals at major venues in the United States, Europe, South America, and Asia. They have performed concertos with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Sendai Philharmonic, the San Marino Republic Orchestra, Orchester Haydn, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra, the San Martino Republic Symphony Orchestra, the Albany Symphony Orchestra, and the Symphonic Orchestra of Castilla y León under the direction of such conductors as Peter Oundjian, Neeme Järvi, Eiji Oue, Arthur Hagen, and Krzysztof Urbanski.
Duo Amadeae is passionate about nurturing the next generation of pianists and has given masterclasses and workshops at the Yale College, Chicago Duo Institute and the East Tennessee State University’s Pre-College Department. The duo is scheduled to perform upcoming concerts at the Geneva Music Festival and Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Recital Series.
