He also signed an exclusive recording contract with Decca Classics in October and released his debut studio album, Chopin Études, to glowing reviews, including in The New York Times, The Guardian, and The Times (London).

Upcoming standouts for Yunchan’s summer tour include debuts at the BBC Proms and Verbier Music Festival; appearances with Japan’s Sendai Philharmonic; a tour of major venues across South Korea; and a return to the Hollywood Bowl to perform with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel.

Anna Geniushene traversed the globe during the 2023–2024 season: she made debuts in Prague, Cyprus, Korea, and China; traveled across the United States and Europe in solo and duo recitals; joined other members of the Geniušas family (including husband Lukas) for a 100th anniversary celebration of personal favorite Simeon Ten Holt, playing his monumental hour-long Canto Ostinato on four pianos in November; made recording sessions for a duo-piano album with husband Lukas; performed recitals in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Vancouver, and Vienna; toured Hawaii; and sat on the jury of the International Piano Competition Istanbul Orchestra’Sion. Released in September 2023, Anna’s newest album, Berceuse—a deeply personal project of lullabies spanning several centuries—received critical praise, as Scott Cantrell of The Dallas Morning News gently hailed: “the unassuming warmth of Geniushene’s musicianship is everywhere evident.”
