A native of South Korea, Klara Min has performed extensively throughout North America and Europe, as well as in her home country, in some of the world’s most important concert venues. Such venues include Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center in New York City, Gasteig in Munich, Berlin Philharmonie, Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Wigmore Hall in London, and KBS Broadcast Hall in Seoul. She has performed with prestigious orchestras such as Hamburger Kammerphilharmonie, Munich Kammerphilharmonie, Seoul Symphony Orchestra, sinfonie orchester berlin, Manhattan Chamber Orchestra, New York Sinfonietta, Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra, American Chamber Orchestra, and St. Petersburg State Symphony among others. 

For the 2015-2016 concert season, Klara Min performed Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Sochi Philharmonic in Russia and Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra (formerly known as Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra) in Austria under the baton of Vladimir Fedoseyev, and she recorded Paderewski's Polish Fantasy with Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra with renowned French violinist/conductor Augustin Dumay. Ms. Min also released a CD recording of works by Scriabin on Steinway & Sons Record label on January 8, 2016.

Klara Min’s first album Ripples on Water features modern Korean piano music; it was released on Naxos and complimented for “mak(ing) every note count” (Allmusic). Her second release of a selection of Chopin’s Mazurkas was released on Delos. The American Record Guide selected the album as one of six critics’ choices in 2013, raving that “her dynamic control is out of this world." Both albums are frequently broadcast on WQXR/WNYC radio stations. 

Klara Min was the recipient of a Samsung scholarship. She is a Steinway Artist and based in Berlin and New York.
