Gestern Abend spielte Junghee Ryu im Rahmen der Konzertreihe „The Berlin Debuts“ im Kammermusiksaal der Berliner Philharmonie. (vgl. Feuilletonscout vom 12.3.2015 und vom 11.3.2015) Anlässlich des Konzerts gab sie Feuilletonscout ein kurzes Interview.
Feuilletonscout: How was your contact with the New York Concert Artists established?
Junghee Ryu: In 2006, I was one of the pianists who participated in Mozart’s entire piano concerti series in New York City to commemorate the composer’s 250th birth sponsored by Yamaha Piano. Ms. Klara Min, who is also a pianist and currently a director of NYCA, was behind the project. Ever since, I have been invited to perform for many other venues proposed by her.
Feuilletonscout: What does the philosophy of the Society, which is breaking with conventions and forging new, artistic paths, mean to you when you interpret classical music for yourself?
Junghee Ryu: The notes have no meanings of their own. It’s the idea behind them that is what is so enduring to us. I always play as though I am delivering a message. While I perform, I have the privilege to speak on the composer’s behalf. It is important to me that I do everything I can to articulate the ideas as clearly as possible. In this day and age, this is not easy. Weiterlesen »Ein Moment mit … Pianistin Junghee Ryu
