Yeol Eum Son is making her debut with the BBC Proms staring in BBC Prom 7. Yeol Eum Son’s graceful and timeless interpretations, crystalline touch and versatile, thrilling performances have caught the attention of audiences worldwide so it’s no surprise she has been asked to participate with this year’s Proms. With conductor Omer Meir Wellber and the BBC Philharmonic, the performance takes place on 23 July with Yeol Eum Son to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 15 in B flat major, K450(25 mins)
As a distinguished Mozart interpreter, across the 17/18 season Yeol Eum made major UK debuts with the CBSO in Birmingham (Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 21 with Omer Meir Wellber) and at London’s Cadogan Hall with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields (Mozart’s Piano Concerti No’s 8 & 21). Her London debut coincided with Onyx CD release of a highly acclaimed all-Mozart recording featuring Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21 with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields under Sir Neville Marriner for whom it was the very last recording. According to The Times Yeol Eum Son is a model of clarity and fleetness whilst Gramophone called the recording an uncommonly fine Mozartian debut.
Most recently Yeol Eum also made her debut at King’s Place with Aurora Orchestra (Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 21 with Nicholas Collon) and appeared at the Wigmore Hall for a chamber collaboration with the cellist Natalie Klein. In the 19/20 Yeol Eum makes her debut with Liverpool Philharmonic (Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with Andrew Manze) and tours the UK with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra (Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the left hand with Yan Pascal Tortelier).
Last week, Yeol Eum Son was featured on “In Tune Live at the Proms” with Sean Rafferty which you can listen to here at 13:30
