SATURDAY, JULY 7 @ 7:30 P.M.
STEINWAY HALL - DALLAS
On Saturday, July 7 at 7:30, Young Steinway Artist Sahun "Sam" Hong will present a preview of his upcoming debut recital at the Verbrier Festival in August, an invitation that follows his winning the prestigious Vendome Prize at the Festival last year. Sam's program consists of fantasies from several time periods, and highlights how the different composers treated the form!
FANTASIA: A Journey Through Time
J.S. Bach – Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, BWV 903
Schumann – Fantasiestücke, Op. 12
Beethoven – Sonata in E-flat major “Quasi una fantasia”, Op. 27 No. 1
“[Hong's] playing looked effortless... he commanded... and the audience erupted.”
“Taking a long view of Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 2, Hong crafted an elegant performance, distinguished by large musical arches and a remarkable evenness of dark tone.”
“Hong was at home at the keyboard, performing Beethoven's Concerto No. 3 with lots of clarity, confidence, and wisdom.”
-New York Concert Review
“The audience seemed unanimous in their enormous delight in listening to the superb teamwork of conductor Trond Saeverud leading the orchestra in Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 with guest pianist Sahun Hong.”
“Hong's playing proved to be full of musical conviction and insight… he was masterful in bringing forth the dramatically contrasting characters of the Hindemith, and also gave a captivating account of the moods in the Grieg sonata - the harsh Norwegian coldness and dreamy imagery were captured in an exquisite blend with violinist InMo Yang.”
