Heejae Kim, Piano
Cristian Macelaru forms a dream team with Heejae Kim, winner of the prestigious Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra Prize at the 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition. She performs Mozart’s ‘Jeunehomme’ concerto, a work the legendary pianist Alfred Brendel described as ‘one of the greatest wonders of the world’. Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet is an inspired take on the plight of The Bard’s ‘star-crossed lovers’. It simply oozes great melodies and extraordinary orchestral textures. Fauré’s charming Dolly Suite was originally a series of musical gifts for the young daughter of the composer’s mistress. Its delightful Berceuse was used as the signature tune to the long-running BBC radio programme Listen with Mother.
