The astonishingly talented pianist dazzled the audience of the 2019 Budapest Spring Festival with a performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. A reviewer called the Korean pianist’s take on Bach “fresh, eccentric and intensive, with constant surprises for the listener.” Ji now returns to the Liszt Academy with Beethoven’s cultic piano works, pieces that are eccentric, intensive and ceaselessly surprising in their own right. They are a golden opportunity for a performer like Ji, who was the youngest pianist to win the New York Philharmonic Orchestra’s Young Artists Competition, and finished first in 2012 at the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.
This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre.
