CHUNG MYUNG-WHUN PIANO RECITAL  
Seoul Arts Center, Concert Hall  
 
April 28: Maestro Chung Myung-whun will come down from the podium and sit before a piano to hold a recital for the first time in seven years.  
 
Although he's internationally known as a conductor, Chung is in fact the first Korean to take second place at the 1974 Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow. He's previously performed on the piano while being an active conductor but held back from holding recitals as a pianist.    
 
After releasing his first piano album through ECM in 2013, Chung went on tour the following year. Chung will be dropping another piano album next month through Deutsche Grammophon, which includes "Haydn Piano Sonata No. 60," "Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 30" and "Brahms: 3 Intermezzo, Op. 117." During the upcoming recital, he'll be introducing the pieces on the album.    
According to the 68-year-old musician, his 2014 album was "composed of music that he wanted his grandchildren to listen to." In the upcoming album, however, Chung said he wanted to "express different sides of life through music."    
 
The recital begins at 7:30 p.m.  
 
Tickets range from 40,000 won ($36) to 15,000 won.
