Saint-Georges L'Amant Anonyme Overture
Beethoven Violin Concerto
Soloist: Hyeyoon Park
Symphony No. 39
Conductor: Damian Iorio
This final concert of the season is a celebration of strings.
Lesser known than Mozart but in a similar style, Joseph Boulogne Chevalier de Saint Georges was a brilliant composer and musician with many believing that Mozart was influenced by his music. Our opening overture is a charismatic introduction to his work.
Hyeyoon Park made her orchestra debut at the age of nine with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then, she has studied music in Korea, the USA and Berlin and she has performed across the world. In 2012 Hyeyoon received the London Music Masters Award, which opened up her UK career. On the concert platform Hyeyoon Park combines integrity with elegance, focus with panache, all of which combines to make her an artist of true style and virtuosity. We are delighted that she will debut in MK with us in this celebration year.
