Yejin Gil combines technical brilliance with musical depth and the uncompromising pursuit of artistic authenticity. The main emphasis of her work is put both on the classical and romantic repertoires as well as on the music of the XXth and XXst centuries. Her brilliant debut CD with works by Chin, Ligeti, Boulez and Messiaen won the "Coup de Cœur" 2014 of the Académie Charles Cros, and filled listeners worldwide with enthusiasm: "Gil has the fingers to articulate the densest, fast-moving passages in such music with dazzling precision, but everything she does is also perceptive and utterly musical, none of the wit in either set eluding her." (The Guardian).
She worked with orchestras/ensembles such as the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Bochumer Symphoniker, MDR Synfonieorchester, the Philharmonisches Orchester des Staatstheaters Cottbus, Berliner Symphoniker, Staatskapelle Halle, Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau, the Magdeburgische Philharmonie, 1B1 Ensemble, Seoul Chamber Ensemble, Percussions de Strasbourg, Ensemble Court-Circuit and Zafraan Ensemble. In 2014, she was featured as "Artist in Residence" at the Impuls Festival in Brussels, Berlin, Magdeburg and Halle, playing Bernstein’s piano concerto "The Age of Anxiety".
