Kun-woo PAIK - Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle



Beethoven’s 32 sonatas for the piano, known as the “New Testament” for the instrument, stand as a testament to the development of the piano, as well as a formidable technical and artistic challenge for all pianists. The sonatas span nearly his entire life as a composer, dating from 1795 to 1822, and reflect his bold, uncompromising artistic conviction. The legendary Korean pianist Kun-woo PAIK, renowned for his delicate and east-meets-west philosophical touch, has won wide recognition with his complete recording of Beethoven’s sonatas, released in 2008 by Decca. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, Kun-woo PAIK presents the complete cycle of piano sonatas to Taiwanese audiences for the first time, traversing the entire oeuvre in eight performances across eight consecutive days.

The pianist played as if he had all the time in the world to spin his poetic incantations, and allowed the listener to luxuriate in sheer tonal splendor.
The New York Times
True, authentic virtuoso! The beast of the piano as well as the perfect musician.
Le Figaro
Paik's sense of drama, his wit, mastery of nuance, thoughtfully weighted chords and fleet-fingered virtuosity, all are remarkable.
The Independent
Paik était tout simplement phénoménal.
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
