Inmo Yang has won several competitions eg. the Paganini Competition in 2015 and the Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in 2022. Sakari Oramo, the chair of the jury in the Sibelius Violin Competition commented Yang’s playing in following words: “The winner was overwhelming. There is so much great about Inmo’s playing, both musically and violinistically. There is nothing extra involved in the bow changings, which produces singing and ease.”

Yang has performed as a soloist with numerous orchestras around the world. His debut album of 24 Caprices by N. Paganini was released in 2019 and in 2021 he released his second Deutsche Grammophon album.

Yang has studied with Miriam Fried at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. At the moment he is studying with Antje Weithaas at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin.
