Yeol Eum Son makes her much-anticipated Atlanta Symphony Orchestra debut on 2 – 4 May. The concerts, conducted by Dmitry Matvienko, also mark Yeol Eum’s debut performing Britten’s Piano Concerto, Op. 13 in concert.

This marks Yeol Eum’s second US orchestral debut in recent weeks, following her performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major, K. 467 with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra and conductor Shiyeon Sung on 25 – 27 April, in Costa Mesa, CA.

Next week, on 9 May, Yeol Eum returns to Seoul to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491 with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Jaap van Zweden at LOTTE Concert Hall.

Poetic elegance, an innate feeling for expressive nuance and the power to project bold, dramatic contrasts are among the arresting attributes of Yeol Eum Son’s pianism. Her refined artistry rises from breathtaking technical control and a profound empathy for the emotional temper of the works within her strikingly wide repertoire. She is driven above all by her natural curiosity to explore a multitude of musical genres and styles and the desire to reveal what she describes as the “pure essence” of everything she performs. Yeol Eum refuses to impose limits on her artistic freedom and remains determined to explore new artistic territory. Her choice of repertoire, which spans everything from the works of Bach and Mozart to those of Shchedrin and Kapustin, is guided chiefly by the quality and depth of the music.

Throughout the 2023/24 season, Yeol Eum collaborates once again with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern at home in Germany and on tour in South Korea (Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3). In addition to her US debuts in April, she makes debuts with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra (Chopin Piano Concerto No.2), Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (Mozart Piano Concerto No.20), NAC Orchestra (Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.2), and Tenerife Symphony Orchestra (Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3). Yeol Eum also makes recital debuts at the Singapore International Piano Festival, International Piano Festival of Oeiras, Portugal, Risør Chamber Music Festival, Mänttä Music Festival, and returns to Duszniki International Chopin Piano Festival.
