Ms. Jung also looks forward to the release of her second CD, performing works by Rachmaninov with Centaur Records.

Praised as an advocate of contemporary music, Ms. Jung performed both the lead roles in the world premiere of Rage d’amour, commissioned by Tanglewood, as well as the lead role of Princess Pocachin in The Red Silk Thread, commissioned by University of Florida and Curtis Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Ms. Jung has won top prizes throughout her career.

Review

• “A lovely recording of Liszt songs by Soprano Hein Jung, Piano Grigorios Zamparas: Jung has the perfect voice for this music-terrific ease in her upper register and a silvery clear tone”

• “The Composer’s nemesis is Zerbinetta, star of the comedy troupe, a coloratura coquette sung by Hein Jung, and their duet in the Prologue was a beautiful blend. Ultimately, Strauss’ opera is a contest of divas, Zerbinetta and Ariadne, the prima donna on the desert island of Naxos, played by Elizabeth Beers Kataria. Both she and Jung were superbly up to the occasion in the Act 2 opera-within-the-opera on Friday……Then came Zerbinetta’s attempt to cheer up Ariadne, Grossmächtige Prinzessin, a coloratura showpiece, full of spectacular roulades and trills. Jung made it a tour de force, not only scaling the vocal heights with an easy, sparkling tone and accuracy of pitch, but also acting with cleverness and wit.”
Tampa Bay Times, Ariadne auf Naxos, Hein Jung as Zerbinetta

• “(The) Song Arirang was written for soprano Hein Jung and her wonderful, heavenly voice! The composition presents four versions of Arirang that are subjected to stylistic variations based on elements derived from Western pop, rock, and jazz.”
A Festival of New Vocal Music Newsletter, Song Arirang by Zack Browning written for Hein Jung

• “The voice of soprano Hein Jung…the final song, “Faible Coeur” (Faint Heart), reached a much higher level of lyric impact, far surpassing…”

• “A Korean lyric soprano Hein Jung…. Piped sweetly and added apt embellishment to Amina”
San Francisco Classical Voice, San Francisco Opera Merola Young Artist Grand Finale Gala

• “Hein’s Fiordiligi has brilliant moments. The rich timbre of her voice rises with strength and fortitude, changing octaves with ease and thrilling the crowd”
The Capital Times, Cosí fan tutte, Hein Jung as Fiordiligi

• “Cogent and capable performance from Hein Jung
San Francisco Chronicle, Rape of Lucretia, Hein Jung as Lucia

• “Most notable is the singing, marvelous in each and every instance… (Olthafer and) Jung shine as competing sisters and dueling sopranos, their strength and polish even more evident in contrast to the wonderfully and humorously.”
The Capital Times, Serse, Hein Jung as Romilda
