Jasmine Choi is one of the most celebrated flutists of our generation. She has been critically acclaimed on international stages for her rich tone, technical brilliance, superb musicianship, and for her charismatic stage presence since an early age. After having served as principal flute of the Vienna Symphony and associate principal flute of the Cincinnati Symphony, Choi has now moved on to a career as a full-time soloist.

Nominated by Symphony magazine as one of “America’s Emerging Artists,” Jasmine Choi was presented on the “Rising Stars” series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Performance highlights include solo recitals at Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus Schubert Saal in Vienna, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, Seoul Arts Center in Seoul, and she has appeared as a soloist in the Musikverein Golden Hall in Vienna, Konzerthaus Mozart Saal in Vienna, Dvorak and Smetana Halls in Prague, and Disney Hall in Los Angeles.

She has performed as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony, Juilliard Symphony, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Salzburg Mozarteum, Czech Philharmonic Chamber, and Seoul Philharmonic, among many others. Ms. Choi was invited as soloist for the National Flute Association (NFA)’s 40th anniversary in Las Vegas, and was highly celebrated with her solo performances including the opening gala concert and the closing ceremony, as well as a solo recital.

At 16, Jasmine Choi came to the United States when she was accepted to study at the Curtis Institute of Music on a full scholarship. The legendary New York Philharmonic principal Julius Baker called her “a huge sensation,” and she studied with him for four years until his death in 2003. Jasmine Choi holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Curtis Institute of Music and a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School where she studied with Philadelphia Orchestra principal Jeffrey Khaner. Later she had further studies with Thomas Robertello. Choi was the winner of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Greenfield Competition, Yamaha Young Performing Artists, Astral Artists, and the Concerto Competition at Juilliard School, which subsequently made her the soloist for the season opening concert of the school’s 100th anniversary celebration under the conductor James DePriest.

Adventurous in expanding the repertoire for flute, Jasmine Choi performs her own arrangements of the violin concertos of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, the Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, as well as numerous other violin and cello sonatas. Her arrangements of the Bach’s Double Concerto for two violins and the Monti’s Czardas have been published by the Falls House Press USA.

As a recording artist, Ms. Choi has recorded four solo CDs with Sony Classical, including the Mozart Flute Concertos, Fantasy: Virtuosic Flute Works, Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Trio, and her latest recording of the Mozart Flute Quartets, released in October 2013, played with the principal strings of the Vienna Symphony.  In June of 2014, she will record her fifth CD, a very personal interpretation of the twelve fantasies of Telemann.

Jasmine Choi is one of the musicians who believe in the genre called “music,” rather than making any greater distinctions of category.  She also enjoys playing jazz, pop, movie tunes, and Broadway as well as the classics, and she is quick in communicating with fans around the globe through Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. She may also be the first flutist to reach 1.5 million hits on YouTube.

Winter Jasmine (2011) was commissioned by American flute maker David Straubinger for the remarkable young flutist Jasmine Choi. Like the intensely – perfumed flowering plant which blooms only during the dark of winter, there is sweetness here in the sadness which this music evokes.
–Gary Schocker
