SCO 24/25 Yeol Eum Son plays Beethoven


Admired for her peerless keyboard prowess as well as her profound musical insights, South Korean Yeol Eum Son has quickly taken a rightful place among the world’s most respected pianists. Following exquisite Mozart in 2022, she returns to the SCO with something far stormier and more dramatic: Beethoven’s powerful Third Piano Concerto.

Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev opens with Brahms’ gloriously lyrical tribute to Haydn, and the concert comes to a climax with the choral grandeur of Haydn’s own ‘Nelson’ Mass. Written during a time of war, the piece moves from menacing drama to triumphant victory in what’s generally considered the composer’s most expressive music.
