Korean violinist Inmo Yang has been hailed by the Boston Globe for his seamless technique and a tender warmth of tone, combined with "an ability to project an engaging sense of inner sincerity through his playing. In March 2015, he won the 54th International Violin Competition Premio Paganini in Genoa, Italy, marking the first time since 2006 that the Paganini Competition jury awarded First Prize. He also garnered the following special prizes: youngest finalist, best performance of the contemporary original piece, and performance most appreciated by the audience, confirming The Violin Channels praise of Inmo as one of the new generations most talented young string virtuosi.
Inmo has since performed with many prestigious orchestras and renowned recital venues worldwide including his recent Carnegie Hall recital debut at Weill Recital Hall, a concerto engagement with the Danish National Symphony conducted by Fabio Luisi, and a special recital in Genoa using Paganinis own Guarneri Del Gesu violin.
In 2018, Inmo performed with Orchestre Nationale de France in Rolle and Geneva, as part of the orchestras tour in Switzerland. Inmo was also invited to Paris in January of 2019 to perform Saint-Saens third violin concerto with the orchestra at the Radio-France auditorium. In Korea, Inmo was the Kumho Art Hall artist-in-residence for the 2018 season. As part of the residency, Inmo gave a performance of Niccolo Paganinis 24 caprices, which was recorded live and released under the Deutsche Grammophone label in November 2018.
