Tenor Q-Won Han comes from South Korea. He inaugurated his solo career back in 1998 when he enrolled in the Seoul Arts High School. He was later accepted at the Seoul National University where he worked with Sewon Park.
From 2011, Q-Won Han studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne with Claudia Kunz-Eisenlohr. While still during his training period he succeeded in emerging successful from a number of competitions, among them the 2009 Korean Schubert Competition, at which he won first prize. The following year he took the third prize as winner of the “Lee Dae-Woong” Competition in Seoul.
The young Korean singer’s repertoire ranges from baroque works to compositions from the romantic era. These include the tenor roles in Bach’s “Weihnachtsoratorium” as well as Mozart’s Requiem, the “Oratorio de Noël” by Saint-Saëns and “Elijah” by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
He has presented himself in song recitals to audiences in both Korea and Germany. Q-Won Han also gathered experience on the operatic stage, in roles like Alfredo in Verdi’s “La Traviata” in his native country, along with Tamino in “Die Zauberflöte” in conjunction with a conservatory project and has sung Belfiore in Mozart’s “La finta giardiniera” and Orpheus in Charpentier’s “La descente d’Orphée aux enfers” at the theatre in Aachen.
