Victor Lim

Described as a pianist with ‘with great possibilities of nuance and perfect flexibility’ (Revista Arta), South Korean-British pianist Victor Lim is establishing himself as one of the most versatile and creative musicians of his generation.

Following his first public appearance in the televised 2012 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Victor has performed around the world in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Norway, Denmark, Romania, China, Singapore and South Korea. He has collaborated with Stephen Hough, Graham Fitkin, Karen Gomyo, Eszter Haffner, Suzie Mészáros and Sandra Lied-Haga, and enjoys duo partnerships with soprano Xiang Ting Teng and cellist Waynne Kwon, with whom he won the 2020 Tunnell Trust Music Club Award. Victor is a 2021 City Music Foundation Artist, Making Music UK’s Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist and the winner of the 2021 RNCM Gold Medal. 

I am looking forward to developing into a more professional, creative and individual musician through the CMF programme. It’s fantastic to be part of such a supportive and welcoming family of talented musicians.

In addition to his active performing career, Victor is the Senior Creative Coordinator for Fingertips ASBL and works closely with Olympias Music Foundation in Manchester. Victor is the Associate Artist of International Young Musicians Academy, Leverhulme Fellow of Pro Corda, and a former coordinator of Millfield Summer School.  

Victor studied at Wells Cathedral School, Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Academy of Music and Norwegian Academy of Music where his teachers have included John Byrne, Richard Ormrod, Graham Scott, Jeremy Young, Murray McLachlan, Michael Dussek and Kathryn Stott.
