The Washington Post recently hailed his 'weeping tone and spot-on intonation made you wonder whether this was what it was like to hear an Itzhak Perlman or an Isaac Stern in their early years'.
Stefan is also an active recitalist and chamber musician - performing regularly with the Ensemble Ditto - a wildly popular Korea-based chamber music group.
