2016.5.11 MUSIC Ticket



Concert Hall, Seoul Arts Center

July 20: Pianist Kim Sun-wook will play Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations,” which is considered very difficult to perform on stage. The fact that it lasts about an hour demonstrates this, and the pianist has also termed the piece the “hard-core of classics,” according to the concert’s management company.

The pianist gained international fame and attention when he won the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006. Kim is known for his great understanding of classical music and also studied conducting at the U.K. Royal Academy of Music.

The show starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets range from 30,000 won to 90,000 won.

Nambu Bus Terminal Station, line No. 3, exit 5.

May 24: Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, who has been widely loved by Korean fans, is returning to Seoul.

She told Yonhap News Agency last year that she fell in love with Korean audiences, who often sing along during concerts, which is why she has visited Korea quite often since her first visit in 2009.

The concert starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets range from 55,000 won ($47) to 77,000 won.
