Biography

Identified by Gramophone as "the talent of tomorrow - today", Sung was critically acclaimed, described as creating "magical impressionistic, but also dramatic sound-paintings" by Westdeutsche Zeitung, “her imaginative insight was as impressive as her ability to change mood from the playful to the profound, from the elegant to the eccentric” by Nottingham Post. After her Wigmore Hall debut, Classics Today praised her performance: “masterful and effortless technique on all levels, yet never treats virtuosity as an end in itself, focusing instead on details of dynamics, tonal shadings, and expression”.

Sung performed at prestigious venues: Wigmore Hall, Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Concert Hall, Palau de la Musica Barcelona and Valencia, South Bank Centre London, Kings Place London, Conway Hall London, Auditorium di Milano, Harrogate International Festival, recital sponsored by the President of Poland, International Festival Palermo Classica, Benasque Music Festival and had the honour of performing privately for the British Royal Family.
