Info for Schubert: Piano Sonatas I



Für seine erste Solo-Aufnahme bei Sony Classical mit Werken von Schumann, Schubert und Liszt wurde der junge, in München lebende Pianist William Youn hochgelobt. "Mit Gespür auswählt und glänzend gespielt... Welch poetischer Einstand!", schrieb hr2, und auch der WDR war begeistert: "Es ist eine bestens konzipierte Aufnahme. Musikalisch wird man glücklich, wenn man sich auf William Youns feinfühligen Ansatz einlässt". Für sein neues Album hat sich William Youn ganz der Musik Franz Schuberts gewidmet und spannt einen weiten Bogen von der ersten bis zur letzten Sonate. Das Doppelalbum eröffnet mit der letzten, der großen B-Dur Sonate D 960 aus Schuberts Todesjahr 1828 - und Youn stellt ihren bisweilen traumverlorenen Klängen die frische, selbstbewusste erste Sonate E-Dur D 157 entgegen, die innerhalb weniger Wochen 1815 entstand. Auf dem zweiten Album folgen dann die lichte Sonate Nr. 13 A-Dur D 664, das mysteriöse Konglomerat der Sonate Nr. 9 fis-Moll D 571 / 604 / 570, ohne den unvollendeten vierten Satz, und abschließend die gewichtige Sonate Nr. 14 a-Moll D 784 - ein Werk von für Schubert eher unüblicher Herbheit und Strenge. Die Aufnahme ist der erste Teil einer Gesamteinspielung der Klaviersonaten Schuberts.

William Youn, Klavier



William Youn
The award-winning pianist William Youn has been described by critics as a “genuine poet” with “sovereign, bravura technique of touch”. After early studies in Korea and in the USA, William again changed continents to study at the Hanover University of Music and at the Piano Academy Lake Como, where he worked regularly with Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Dmitri Bashkirov, Andreas Staier, William Grant Naboré and Menahem Pressler.

Based now in his adopted hometown of Munich, Germany, William performs internationally from Berlin via Seoul to New York with major orchestras, including Cleveland Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Belgium, the Mariinsky Theater and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.

As chamber musician, William enjoys close collaborations with Nils Mönkemeyer, Sabine Meyer, Julian Steckel, Carolin Widmann, Veronika Eberle, Johannes Moser and the Signum Quartet. He also performs increasingly on fortepiano at venues such as the Mecklenburg Vorpommern Festival and the Mozart Festival in Würzburg.

William has recorded for Sony Korea and Ars Produktion. Other recordings include a disc of works by Brahms with Mönkemeyer, and 'Mozart with Friends' with Sabine Meyer, Julia Fischer and Mönkemeyer, which was named Chamber Music Recording of the Year at ECHO Klassik 2017. His recording of Mozart's complete piano sonatas for Oehms Classics has recieved extensive critical acclaim. His first solo album for Sony Classical will be released internationally in October 2018.
