Introducing Yeol Eum Son

I always enjoy sharing with you my experiences of listening to young artists who are new to me. This brings me fresh hope that music which is 200 yeard old might well survive longer, in the hands of passionate artists of today.

Yeol Eum Son is a South Korean classical pianist. She first drew international attention when she appeared as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Lorin Maazel in 2004. Her awards include the Silver Medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition 2011, in which she also received the Best Chamber Concerto Performances and the Best Performance of the Commissioned Work.

I heard her perform the Mozart Piano Concerto number 21, and I experienced her as a passionate and expressive artist.

Here is Yeol Eum Sol as piano soloist in the Concerto number 21 by Mozart:
