Pianist Park set to dazzle Nederburg audience
Celebrated South Korean pianist Young-Choon Park will play sonatas by Scarlatti, Schubert and Chopin at Nederburg on August 29 at 17h00.
A child prodigy, Park gave her first full recital when she was seven years old and at the tender age of nine she played Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto with the Seoul Symphony Orchestra. She went on to study music at the Juilliard School in New York before gaining a Master’s degree at the Hochschule in Munich.
Since 1993 she has toured extensively – giving over 50 concerts a year in Europe, Scandinavia and the United States. Her performances have been broadcast for radio and television in many countries, and she has performed with many of the world’s leading orchestras. Throughout her travels Park has received critical acclaim for the sensitivity and refinement of her recital and concerto performances.
The next Nederburg concert on September 19 features the Cape Town-based Taffanel Trio, comprising flutist Marietjie Pauw, clarinetist Annamarie Bam and pianist Benjamin van Eeden. The Trio’s programme will include works by Debussy and Dmitri Shostakovich.
Tickets for the Nederburg concerts are R150 per person. They include a welcoming drink and a delicious light supper served with fine Nederburg wines. Bookings can be made by calling Sonja Morkel on 021 809 8344 or Irma Albers on 021 809 8106 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
