“…seductive clarity without falling into dryness or pedantry – not only power, fire and passion but also proportion and form…” - Suddeutsch Zeitung
South Korean-born pianist Young-Choon Park began to learn the piano at the age of four and gave her first full recital when she was seven. Two years later she was playing concertos with the Seoul Symphony Orchestra and at 12 was sent, on her own, to study at the Juilliard School in New York, staying with a Korean woman she had never met.
“Be careful what you wish for your children, however talented” might be the moral here, but she survived and thrived. We are delighted that she is now coming to work with our exceptionally talented young pianists and also give this recital of much-loved pieces by Haydn, Beethoven and Chopin.
Proceeds from this concert will go to the Friends of Music at Wells Cathedral School. With the generous support of Mr David Brown.
