August 17: Violinist Guillaume Sutre, harpist Kyung-Hee Kim-Sutre and fortepianist Steven Vanhauwaert

Violinist Guillaume Sutre, Harpist Kyung-Hee Kim-Sutre, and fortepianist Steven Vanhauwaert perform works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Wölfl.

Violinist Guillaume Sutre began his studies in Douai, France, and entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at age 14. In the U.S., he attended Indiana University at Bloomington to study with Josef Gingold, Franco Gulli, Menahem Pressler, and Janos Starker. Sutre was attracted to chamber music early in his career. In 1986 he founded the Trio Wanderer, and 10 years later he joined the Ysaÿe Quartet. Sutre’s collaborators have included his wife, Kyung-Hee Kim-Sutre; Elisabeth Leonskaja; Michaela Martin; Pascal Rogé; Michel Portal; Nicholas Angelich; Jean-Claude Pennetier; Roland Pidoux; Antonio Lysy; Gautier Capuçon; and Wolfgang Meyer. His recordings for Sony Classical, Decca, Harmonia Mundi, Naïve, Aeon, and Ysaÿe Records have received distinctions in France and internationally.

Kyung-Hee Kim-Sutre was the first-prize winner of the Elizabeth Herbert Hobin Harp Competition in 1987 and the Lily Laskine Chamber Music Competition in 1991. The diverse cultural backgrounds of her education—Korean, French, and American—color her extensive repertoire, which ranges from music by Dussek to living composers. Kim-Sutre works with many of today’s most talented musicians, including Raphaël Oleg, Laure Colladant, Jocelyn Aubrun, Andrea Griminelli, Ronald Leonard, Movses Pogossian, Tony Arnold, David Grimal, Michel Moraguès, the Ysaÿe Quartet, the Ludwig Quartet, and Guillaume Sutre.

Hailed by the Los Angeles Times for his impressive clarity, sense of structure, and monster technique, Steven Vanhauwaert has garnered a wide array of accolades, including the Maurice Lefranc award, Rotary Prize, Galiot Prize, and USC Concerto Competition. In October 2004 Vanhauwaert won the grand prize at the Los Angeles International Liszt Competition, which enabled him to tour through the U.S. and Hungary. To date he has appeared in major venues with orchestras such as the Pacific Symphony, the Flemish Symphony, and the USC Symphony, among others. His debut in China in June 2010 culminated with an opening at the renowned National Performing Center for the Arts in Beijing.
