Pianists Naomi Kudo and Yoonie Han, both the 2008 winners of Julliard’s Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition, can illustrate their talents separately and together.

We’ll also hear Yoonie with the New York Concert Artists Orchestra conducted by Vince Lee for Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, at a concert presented by New York Concert Artists Orchestra this past May.

Just heard Naomi Kudo and Yonnie Han's rendition of a Chopin concerto which was the finest rendition I have ever heard. Is there any way there is a CD of this pergormance avalable for purchase?
