Virtuoso flutist and audience favorite Jasmine Choi returns to collaborate with the New York Classical Players in two Vivaldi’s Double concertos with an emerging violinist Su Hyun Park. Jasmine will also premiere Texu Kim’s newly composed Le Temps Déformé commissioned by NYCP. This program will also include a lush example of twentieth-century English composition, Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten.
Superstar flutist Jasmine Choi is renowned throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States for her brilliance in every musical genre. Named one of the “Top 10 Greatest Flutists in History” by Sinfini Magazine (UK), Choi is celebrated for her golden tone, highly sophisticated musicianship, and charismatic stage presence. She is a musical innovator who also writes her own transcriptions of great repertoire for other instruments. Choi earned a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School, after which she was immediately hired at 22 as associate principal flute at Cincinnati Symphony. Six years later she moved on to Vienna Symphony’s principal flute chair; in 2013 she launched her solo career.
