“Shin-Heae Kang is a magnificent pianist. She has all the qualities, superb technique, serious and devoted musicianship, very big repertoire. I strongly recommend her to your attention”

MARTHA ARGERICH


On the way to a world career

“From cautious shyness and reverence to a pianistic Whirlwind Shin-Heae Kang showed her development from a child prodigy to a mature pianist. Born in Kiel to Korean parents where she also grew up, and after first studies at the University for Music in Lübeck she is a real Schleswig-Holstein child on her way to a world career (…) Shin-Heae Kang showed a brilliant masterly control and mastery of music and technique (…) Shin-Heae Kang has been developing to a fury on the piano during the evening”

SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN MUSIC FESTIVAL RECITAL DEBUT
SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEINISCHE LANDESZEITUNG


 

“Now Shin-Heae Kang, born 1987 in Kiel and living near to Kiel gave her successful festival debut in the Thormann Hall which was totally sold out (…) dancing- , ironic-, expressive-skills and formal far-sightedness are forming a beautiful symbiosis in her interpretation. The furious 7/8-bar-finals was increasing intelligently as well as vehemently to an explosive end – a real master performance!”

MARIINSKY THEATRE MAGAZINE ST.PETERSBURG


 

“With an inborned musical talent and a very versatile training and education she has received in Germany, Kang performed the program highly professional, with a very pleasant sound, without exceeding the dynamic limits ever. This requires by an artist in specific acoustic circumstances of a concert hall especially big stage experience and the tools of the skills”

PIANO FORUM MAGAZINE MOSCOW


 

“She does not look like this. And her name does not sound like this. But she is a true North German – the pianist Shin-Heae Kang (…) The reputation of her pianistic giftedness was apparently preceded her, because visitors from all over Schleswig-Holstein were coming to Heide to listen to her performance (…) took the audience into a world of classical poetry full of sound colors, which one rarely gets to listen”

BRAHMS SOCIETY SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN RECITAL
DITHMARSCHER LANDESZEITUNG


 

“An Appassionata with a passionate glow – (…) Kang showed the full range of her high and unsurpassable virtuosity. In a breathtaking speed and great dexterity of the finger she swept over the keys and ignited in each individual study a performance of an intensive and dynamic clenched awareness with an almost frightening power”

NIEDERSÄCHSISCHES TAGEBLATT


 

“Above all the most fascinating item is the forming bandwidth, the artist is mastering. Powerful gripping, but also delicate and restrained; the diversity of expression seems to be unlimited. The young pianist performed with great passion, greatness, high virtuosity, put different emphases, but always being committed to the piece”

NIEDERSÄCHSISCHES TAGEBLATT


Great moment of piano music

“A magnificent recital, in which the intensity and depth of a polished performance achieved a great light- and persuasiveness. Amazing how the aspiring artist was living in and with the sounds and how she was achieving her absolute pianistic highlights conveying these to the audience, when she expressed and showed the core and the deepest of the music outwards being indulged in the melodious sound”

LAUSITZER RUNDSCHAU


 

“Meanwhile, the Big Lodge of Schleswig-Holstein handed over the price of the Druid Order to the 19-year-old pianist Shin-Heae Kang for highly qualified and in very exceptional dimensions willed and committed offspring for her previous extraordinary performances as a talented pianist, who was not only receiving attention for her excellent public performances, but who is also already receiving the highest recognition from the world of musical experts”

FROM THE BOOK – THE DRUID ORDER IN CENTRAL EUROPE


 

“For the pianistic merciless piece she had not only nerves of steel. No, she made the audience simply forgetting how devilishly difficult the pianistic matter is. Fearlessly she took the dodgy sixths, octaves and jump passages in attack, turning these into demonic swing, drowned the voices in repetitions from new views and immersed herself so strongly into the intimate variations that you were forgetting yourself and your convictions during her Brahms-Performance”

KIELER NACHRICHTEN


 

“Shin-Heae Kang paired virtuosity with high musical expressiveness.”

HUSUMER NACHRICHTEN

NIEDERSÄCHSISCHES TAGEBLATT


 

“(…) inspired the audience with an amazing range of timbres and sound colors in virtuos brilliant pieces”

KISSINGER SOMMER – MAIN-ECHO


The potential for a very great personality

“Amazing, with which accuracy Shin-Heae Kang knew here, to bring out profiled melody and sound lines with the left hand in the complex part of the whole-tone and chromatic weaves, in which Tristan chords are repeatedly sounding (…) next to those sections in which the artist extracted out the throbbing sound of repetitions of the recurrent main themes with impressive straightforwardness, she always understood it very well to find different contours in the lyrical parts”
