Classical pianist Son Yeol-eum has returned to the limelight with her first album in eight years, “Modern Times.” It features a wide range of music from jazzy razzmatazz swing tunes to sounds that remind listeners of a dark and desolate night.

“This musical theme is something I have always wanted to pursue because I think this style of music represents such important and influential times in our history,” said Son, during a press conference held at the Stradeum concert hall in Seoul on Wednesday.

“All of the music selected from the album are from the early 20th century, an era in which I think saw a big shift in both world history and music culture,” she added.

There are many great contemporary composers of our time but few write music that we can relate to so easily and closely as Nikolai Kapustin. His exquisite use of techniques and musical languages of classical and jazz ensures that his music appeals to a wide range of listeners. To those who love classical music but know little about jazz it does not sound too unfamiliar and vice versa. Indeed, it gives great pleasure to even the most untrained ears of either genre of music.

Second Prize winner at both the 2011 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition and the 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009, Yeol Eum Son’s graceful interpretations, crystalline touch and versatile, thrilling performances have caught the attention of audiences worldwide. Praised for her widely eclectic repertoire, ranging from Bach and Mozart to Shchedrin and Gershwin, on this recording Son performs a selection of Mozart piano works with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields led by the late Sir Neville Marriner in his final recording.

Many will be emotionally invested in hearing the last recording to feature the much-missed conductor Sir Neville Marriner, and he does indeed disply typically sensitive control of his ensemble – but this takes nothing away from the ingenious performance of pianist Yeol Eum Son in one of Mozart’s most-played works. There are so many details to admire here, and the partnership of Son and Marriner proves to have been a very musically fruitful one.
