South Korean pianist Yoonie Han is known for her technical mastery, not to mention her sartorial style -- she often performs in gowns designed by sponsor Dolce & Gabbana. She holds a masters' degree from Juilliard, recently released her first album and has played Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center. For this Steinway Salon performance at Symphony Space, she'll tackle a 2015 piece written especially for her by Theodore Wiprud, and works by Gluck, Granados and LeFrak, all building to a Gershwin finale of Rhapsody in Blue.
