Flato Markham Theatre for the Performing Arts
[from ksorchestra.ca] Taking centre stage is a concert devoted entirely to the great works of master composer Ludwig van Beethoven. The KSO’s own violinist Marie-Andree Gray shines in her performance of Beethoven’s Romance for Violin and Orchestra in F, a lyrically beautiful piece imbued with passion and melancholy. Younggun Kim returns to the KSO to perform Beethoven’s Concerti for Piano No. 3 and 4: two spectacular works that were conceived during Beethoven’s fruitful mid-career, which also saw the creation of his infamous Symphony No. 5.

The Gift of Music concert series opens at St. Luke’s Anglican Church this Sunday with cellist Dobrochna Zubek and pianist Younggun Kim.
The afternoon will include both solo piano and solo cello pieces as well as duo performances. The program offers a repertoire that ranges from the liveliness of a Chopin polonaise and the jazz like overtones of Kapustin’s Eight Concert Etudes, to the touching and soul-filled tones of Wilkomirski’s Aria and Bloch’s Prayer.
Both performers are doctoral candidates in the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto. Winner of numerous international awards, Zubek has performed as a soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and orchestra cellist in England, France, Spain, Mexico and China, and was this year’s recipient of the YoYo-Ma fellowship at the Faculty of Music at University of Toronto.
Kim made his debut in 2008 performing the Brahms First Piano Concerto with the Toronto Philharmonia, conducted by Maestro Kerry Stratton. He has performed around North America and Europe and is the recipient of several international awards. Since 2011, Kim has also been closely involved with the Health Arts Society of Ontario, providing classical music concerts to audiences who can no longer make it to concert halls.
The Amity Trio (piano, cello, violin) will perform Nov. 23, classical guitarist Tariq Harb will return Nov. 30 and the Three Tenors will finish out the series on Dec. 14.
Tickets cost $15 each or and are available at Curiosity House Books, The Creemore Echo and at the door. Purchase tickets for all four shows for $50.
All performances are at St. Luke’s Anglican Church, at 22 Caroline St. W, in Creemore, beginning at 3 p.m.

The competition was held under the high patronage of Mr. François HOLLANDE, President of France. On top of the cash prize, Younggun will be giving concerts in France and other countries.
Younggun Kim plays two recitals in San Antonio, Texas as a part of the San Antonio International Piano Competition Piano Series, in addition to teaching a master class.

Younggun Kim performs a program of Chopin, Ravel, Poulenc, and Prokofiev. His performance will include two very different takes on the Waltz by Chopin and Ravel, and two very different attitudes of Poulenc and Prokofiev, who formed a lasting friendship in Paris in 1921. The two did share these passions however; the piano and the game of bridge.
