This summer will be a boon for piano enthusiasts, as Korean pianists of international acclaim are performing across the country.

Opening the season is Lim Yun-chan, 20, who shot to fame after becoming the youngest winner of the Gold Medal at the 2022 Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth, Texas. The young virtuoso with a huge fan base in and out of Korea haunched his recital series in Seoul, Friday.

During the “Yunchan Lim Piano Recital,” his first solo recital at home in 18 months, Yun gave a spine-chilling intense and moving performance, captivating the hearts of the audience that filled the 2,000-seat Lotte Concert Hall.

The program included German Romantic composer Mendelssohn’s “Songs Without Words” Op. 19, No. 1 in E Major and Op. 85, No. 4 in 토토 A Minor, Russian composer Tchaikovsky’s “The Seasons” and another Russian composer Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” the composer’s 1874 musical tribute to his close fallen friend Viktor Hartmann, where each of 10 movements is inspired by Hartmann’s sketches and drawings.

Yun will wrap up his concert tour back in Seoul at the Seoul Arts Center, June 22, after performing in Cheonan on Sunday, Daegu on Wednesday, Tongyeong on Saturday, Bucheon on June 17 and Gwangju on June 19.
