With music, the soul begins to breathe.
In this breath, I hear the vast sound of silence.

About.

Music is equal to breath for me. It is a sounding, sculptured breath – and thus an existential part and necessity of life. With music the soul begins to breathe. In this breathing I hear the vast sound of silence.

– Jimin Oh-Havenith

An exceptional sonority and fidelity owed to the text determine Jimin Oh-Havenith’s piano playing. Her warm sound, which is always embedded within the rhythmic structure, lets music come alive in all its richness.
Synchronicity of sound and rhythm, not arbitrary changes in tempo and dynamics determine the clarity of her interpretation, as in Jimin Oh-Havenith’s current recording of Beethoven’s last sonata op. 111.

JImin Oh-Havenith was born in Seoul, South Korea. In 1979 she began her piano studies with Jin-Woo Chung at the Seoul National University. From 1981 to 1984 she continued her studies with Aloys Kontarsky at the Musikhochschule Köln.
In addition to her concert activities as a soloist, radio and CD recordings, she also performed as a piano duo with her late husband Raymund Havenith (†1993).
Jimin taught at the Hochschule für Musik, Mainz and the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Frankfurt am Main.

Since 2013 she is active as a soloist again.
