Rachmaninoff
Solo Piano Works

Yung Wook Yoo, piano
Julia Sakharova, violin
Margrét Arnadóttir, cello

Pianist Yung Wook Yoo, who in 1998 won the Grand Prize and Gold Medal of the XIII Paloma O’Shea Santander International Piano Competition, has embarked on a concert career that now takes him around the world. For a recent solo recital in Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, Washington Post reviewer Ronald Broun wrote; "Yoo has a big technique that lets his imagination roam free…" Of his New York debut, New York Times reviewer Allan Kozinn wrote, "…(Yoo) is a mature player with interesting ideas and the means to convey them…not content to dazzle his listeners with speed and volume, but sought ways to bring out the music hidden within the gymnastics."

Violinist Julia Sakharova, a scholarship student at Juilliard School of Music, has won awards in this country and in her native Russia for her passionate playing. A review in the French publication, "L’Alsace," describes "an incredible temperament, very fine sensitivity, remarkable colors."

Cellist Margrét Arnadóttir, of Reykjavik, Iceland, is a student at The Juilliard School, and has appeared as soloist with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. The Tavros recording emphasizes her ability for passionate, insightful interpretation.
