On Saturday, the 16th of November 2019, the Johannesburg Musical Society concludes their annual activities with a celebratory concert – The Percy Baneshik Memorial Concert – with Jongdo An, brilliant South Korean pianist.

Jongdo An

Jongdo An, who will present the final concert of the year, is a winner of the prestigious Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud International Piano Competition. He has a career that takes him from London to Hamburg, from St Petersburg to Munich, as well as to important international festivals.

He has appeared at Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Seoul Arts Centre, the Grosser Saal of the Salzburg Mozarteum, at the Philharmonie Gasteig in Munich and the Vienna Konzerthaus.

Jongdo An’s highly-regarded recording of the keyboard works of Rameau led to his appointment as a Steinway Artist. He is Artistic Director of Hamburg’s Klangakademie.
