A silver medalist in both the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition and the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition, globetrotting pianist Yeol Eum Son thrills ears with graceful renditions of classical pieces from the 1700s through the 1940s. The program opens with Baldassare Galuppi’s Keyboard Sonata no. 5, showcasing Son’s charm with supple 18th-century melodies. An emotionally diverse series of Debussy’s Preludes and Etudes displays further ivory-tickling prowess, from the contrasting menace and joy of General Lavine to the dreamlike arpeggios of Etude 11. Liszt’s arrangement of Mendelssohn’s well-known Wedding March closes the concert’s first half and causes the piano to overflow with rice. After an intermission, Son picks back up with Sergei Prokofiev’s Sonata no. 8, written during the depths of the Second World War and subverting the traditional sonata form with a cryptically anticlimactic ending. After the concert, a gala and reception give the audience a chance to mingle with fellow music lovers or to take advantage of the distraction to play hide-and-seek in the stage’s curtains.

The sonic professional ramps up for her crescendos inside Mechanics Hall, a 19th-century building known for its supreme acoustics and frequent Elvis sightings. During bouts of thunderous applause, audience members can marvel at the Renaissance Revival–style details of the theater, adorned with ornate touches such as three-tiered chandeliers and Corinthian columns.
