Meet our youngest pianist in this series, Yeol Eum Son, as she makes her Sydney debut.

In 2004, she made waves with her New York Philharmonic debut at just 18. In 2011, she took the silver medal in the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition.

In this concert, we see the reasons for her success as she tackles the most varied of piano forms – themes and variations. Yeol Eum Son coaxes out each melody’s mood before spinning it through many transformations. From the crystalline thrills of Haydn and Arvo Pärt to the richer tones of the Romantics Tchaikovsky, Franck, Alkan and Rachmaninov and the jazzy variations of Kapustin, this is an opportunity to hear a brilliant young artist and international star in her first and only Australian recital for 2022.
