Live from the Seoul Arts Center, pianist Julius Asal – exclusively signed to Deutsche Grammophon since October 2023 – presents a recital juxtaposing repertoire from his acclaimed first album for the Yellow Label with one of the great piano sonatas of the Romantic repertoire. The first half sees him perform works by Scriabin and Scarlatti, woven together into a compelling musical whole through the inclusion of brief transitions created by Asal himself. For the second half, it’s the monumental Piano Sonata No. 3 by the 20-year-old Brahms. Cast in five movements it represents a powerful test of any performer’s technique, stamina as well as their sensitivity and musicianship – and promises to provide a rousing finale to this concert.
