Yeol Eum Son makes her label debut on Naïve playing Mozart’s complete piano sonatas in a 6-CD box set. The Korean pianist has achieved distinction in numerous international competitions, including the Tchaikovsky, Viotti, Rubinstein, and Van Cliburn. While recording, Yeol Eum emphasized bringing out the different characters of each sonata. She says, “You can enjoy the young, curious, experimental, and highly detailed composer at his tender age, in the first few sonatas. You can then also witness his mental breakdown when his mother died, if you listen to the A minor Sonata. The middle opuses display his magician-like side – he thinks of something, the result follows. In his later works, the simplicity, the fluidity, and the freedom he brings is just amazing! Indeed, you can’t get a closer look at his life than to play this entire set.”
