Cherry blossom in South Korea

Greetings to South Korea – 한국에 오신 것을 환영합니다!

Giovanni Antonini and Il Giardino Armonico are delighting baroque fans around the globe: after their successful European tour with Fatma Said, the Labeque sisters and Kristian Bezuidenhout, the orchestra will travel to the Tongyeong International Music Festival, the “Salzburg of Asia”, in South Korea in April. Dedicated to the memory of the German-Korean composer Isang Yun, the festival not only presents its own festival orchestra each spring, but also invites selected European artists to create a programme that is as diverse and multi-perspective as possible. Il Giardino Armonico is represented with two programmes, including one with the Korean-American singer Kangmin Justin Kim.
