It was an honour, and a pleasure, for members of the International Club and their guests, to be present when Dr. Young – Hyun Cho gave a concert, in the chapel of the Citadel, in Juelich.
This, spontaneously organised, event will always remain a “high point” of the Club’s 2014 Programme, “a feather in the cap” of our very capable Club Committee.
The slender figure of the pianist approached the grand piano with confidence, she took a moment to collect her thoughts and with respect, and tenderness, allowed her hands, gently, to descend until her fingers touched the keys of her instrument. The result was pure magic. We were carried with the music, for the notes of the various composers were produced with exactitude, but also with passion, warmth, fire and an innate reverence.
This was an unforgettable evening, I am sure that Beethoven, Brahms, Bach and Busoni would have, themselves, applauded this rendering of their compositions.
Our thanks to Dr. Young–Hyun Cho, and to everyone concerned in the organisation of this, delightful, musical experience.
