Notes & Reviews:

Following CD releases for Sony Korea and ARS Productions, the first of pianist William Youn’s CD series of Mozart’s piano works was released by Oehms Classics in 2013, and honored with the Pizzicato Supersonic Award (Luxembourg). Now, Oehms Classics and William Youn proudly present the second album in their Mozart series. The press has praised the Korean pianist William Youn (b. 1982) as a “genuine poet” with a “bravura technique of touch”. In 2011 he was honored with the Bavarian Art Promotion Prize in his chosen home city of Munich.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Youn is also a forceful pianist. His strong fingers and quick tempos make certain the listener pays attention. As with most piano recordings these days, the microphone placement is fairly close; it is best to take the volume down a notch or two. Slow movements are notable for their expression, and pedal is kept at a minimum. When completed this should be fully competitive with the best the catalog has to offer in Mozart playing.
