Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
The infinite art of musical variation.
Yeol Eum Son’s graceful and timeless interpretations have moved audiences all over the world. Highly regarded as a brilliant virtuoso, she strikes a rare balance between enormous kinetic energy and substantial gravity. Yeol Eum performs all over the world as a recitalist and soloist with orchestras.
Praised for her widely eclectic and rich concerti repertoire, Yeol Eum Son’s flair for creative programming culminates in rich storytelling from a breadth of composers, cultures and times. Her impressive dynamism conjures versatile, thrilling performances that are as memorable as they are fleeting.
Her debut performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall for Melbourne Recital Centre’s Great Performers series explores the infinite art of musical variation. From Haydn’s melancholy Andante with Variations in F minor, Tchaikovsky’s charming and unpretentious Theme & Original Variations in F, one of Pärt’s first ‘Tintinnabuli’ compositions Variations for the Healing of Arinushka and the late Ukrainian composer Nikolai Kapustin’s heavily jazz influenced Variations.
Yeol Eum Son’s crystalline touch and sophisticated repertoire will take audiences on a journey through some of the finest variations written for piano.
Praise for Yeol Eum Son
‘Son played with a dazzling range of dynamics, patiently giving each musical idea a semi-improvisatory spontaneity.’ The Washington Post
