SUNWOOK KIM PIANO RECITAL
Lotte Concert Hall
 
Dec. 8: As pianist Kim Sun-wook is known for his performances of Beethoven's pieces, many of his fans were anticipating a recital of the famed German composer's work as this year marks the 250th anniversary his birth. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kim's scheduled recitals in March and September were both canceled.
 
But Kim is giving it a last go for this year, with plans to hold a recital on Dec. 8 at the Lotte Concert Hall, presenting several Beethoven pieces including "Andante Favori WoO 57" as well as "Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109," "Piano Sonata No. 31, Op. 110" and "Piano Sonata No. 32, Op. 111."
 
In the second part of this recital, Kim will make his debut as a conductor. Under his baton, the KBS Symphony Orchestra will perform Beethoven's "Egmont Overture, Op. 84" and his "Piano Concert No. 2, Op. 19."
 
Like many pianists, Kim hoped to stand on a podium one day and finished his two-year postgraduate course in orchestra conducting at the Royal College of Music in 2012.
 
Preparing for the upcoming recital, Kim expressed he has a great deal of fear but at the same time is happy that he can show a different side of himself to his fans.
 
Kim's passion for Beethoven was acknowledged when he was invited to perform at a concert to celebrate the birth of Beethoven in 2012. Kim was also the first beneficiary of the Beethoven monitoring program in 2013 and was given access to the composer's hand-written documents for further studies.
 
The concert starts at 8 p.m.
 
Tickets range from 30,000 won to 100,000 won.

Dec. 3 -10: Since its premiere in 2016, the changgeuk (Korean traditional opera) version of “The Trojan Women” has been praised by audiences and critics both at home and abroad. It’s been co-produced by the National Theater of Korea and the Singapore International Festival of Arts. Directed by renowned Singaporean director Ong Keng Sen, the changgeuk is an adapted version of the Greek play by Euripedes.
 
The story revolves around the final moments of the Trojan Empire after its loss to the Greeks in the Trojan War. Only hours after Troy mistakenly lets in the Trojan Horse full of Greek soldiers, the empire’s men are massacred and the Trojan women face the dreadful fate of being taken away as slaves.
 
The music itself is a mixture of two totally different genres, with pansori (traditional narrative singing) master Ahn Sook-seon and music producer Jeong Jae-il working together in the composition process. Jeong has been recognized for his skills in producing popular music.
 
Along with the cultural melange of Greek mythology and Korean traditional art, the despair of the Trojan women depicted in the story also links to the pain that can be found in Korean history.
 
The performance starts at 7:30 p.m. on weekdays and at 3 p.m. on weekends.
 
Tickets range from 20,000 won to 50,000 won.

Ahn staged her first solo pansori performance in 1986 and has staged about 30 shows to date — the highest number of shows for an individual at the theater. She’s also the only singer who has performed all five pansori stories at the theater. Since 2010, she’s been holding the year-end traditional shows at the theater.  
 
In the second act of the performance, Ahn’s students will take to the stage, including Jeong Mi-jeong, Kim Mi-nah, Park Ae-ri and Kim Jun-su and showcase a merry folk song of the Namdo region.
