"Bae was born in Seoul, Korea, and made his professional debut with the Seoul Philharmonic at the age of 12. He studied with Ivan Galamian at The Juilliard School. His performances in recitals and concerto concerts took him to most of the major cities in Europe, Asia and the United States. "In 1985, he received the gold medal at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels and also was a prizewinner at the Munich International Competition in 1984. In 1986, he was the recipient of a Solo Recitalist Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Because in a way, this [ticket-buying] transaction felt disingenuous to us. We were asking you to pay for something that really wasn't paying for it. You're paying a pittance, a drop in the bucket, compared to what it actually costs to not only make but produce and present, and there was this bit of dishonesty there."
