Works by Berg, Ravel, Stravinsky, Gershwin

Yeol Eum Sons crystalline touch, her versatile, stirring performance and her graceful interpretations have captivated a worldwide audience. The South Korean pianist is famous for her versatile concert repertoire, which includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, George Gershwin and the contemporary Russian composer Rodion Konstantinovich Shchedrin. In her concert in the baroque hall of Kloster Machern she demonstrates facets of her unique playing with the piano sonata opus 1 by Alban Berg, Maurice Ravel's "Le tombeau de Couperin" and "La valse", four pieces by George Gershwin as well as three movements from the ballet "Petruschka" by Igor Stravinsky. The Washington Post raves: "Yeol Eum Son played with an overwhelming dynamic variety. Patiently she gave each musical idea a semi-improvisatory spontaneity. With the first piece, Ravel's "Valses Nobles et Sentimentales," she grabbed the listener by the collar and never let go.

Yeol Eum Son, born in 1986, learned to play the piano at the age of three and a half. At the age of twelve she began her studies with the pianist Kim Dae-jin. In 2004 she toured Asia with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Lorin Maazel. She won second prize at the renowned international Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011 and second prize at the 13th Van Cliburn Piano Competition in 2009. Her interpretation of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 at the Tchaikovsky Competition has received almost ten million clicks on Youtube to date. It was also Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 that she recorded her debut album in 2018 with the Academy-of-St.-Martin-inthe-Fields under the baton of Sir Neville Marriner.
