Hyeyoon Park plays Beethoven
Grazyna Bacewicz Divertimento for Strings
Richard Strauss Metamorphosen
Ludvigvan Beethoven Violin Concerto
Violin Hyeyoon Park
A remarkable musical journey from darkness into light, exploring the psychological effects of war and ensuing peace. Grazyna Bacewicz was one of Poland’s finest twentieth century composers; she survived the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto and her music explores the pain and anguish of that period with incredible wit and charm. Richard Strauss left war torn Germany to write Metamorphosen for the Basel Chamber Orchestra; he never commented on its content, but this masterpiece is recognised as a soliloquy for his defeated and ruined country. Beethoven’s Violin Concerto sits at the pinnacle of western music, ascending above the mere title of a concerto transcending into light and hope.
Combining integrity with elegance and focus with panache, Hyeyoon Park is an artist of outstanding style and virtuosity; she has achieved international acclaim with orchestras across the world.
