 “Pianist Annie Yim made the most beautiful sounds, radiantly coloured, thoughtfully articulated.”
The Times

Pianist Annie Yim’s MusicArt project, The Poet Speaks: From Debussy to Pärt for solo piano and recorded voices, combines pairings of musical composition and poetry in a concert of cross-art collaborations revealing tributes, friendships, and artistic affinities. Each work is no more than a few minutes long, and yet contains a microcosm of the composer’s unique stamp, carrying far more than meets the eyes and ears.

Annie Yim was born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver. In 2015, she founded MusicArt in London, an acclaimed initiative that creates multi-disciplinary new works and performances through collaborations in London, Berlin, and Salzburg. She is a founding member of the Minerva Piano Trio, who made their London debut at the Southbank Centre in 2014 and were St John’s Smith Square young artists in residence 2016/17.
