“Together with the great young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, Hyeyoon Park forms a world class duo. This was clear in Szymanowski’s “Myths from 1915” whose richness of colour and refined melodies require not only limitless sensitivity, but also narrative creative power … Then a spirited performance of César Franck’s A major sonata, in which the finale was particularly intoxicating. Two encores, a Hungarian dance which set sparks flying, and Schumann’s evening song: gentle and simple. Hyeyoon Park and Benjamin Grosvenor are a major event.”
– Sueddeutsche Zeitung, October 2020
“No empty hall could sound more still than it did as Hyeyoon Park and Benjamin Grosvenor spun Szymanowski’s gossamer musical fabric in the third movement. Such impressionistic music depends hugely on the quality of its surface and in this performance it was practically flawless. Grosvenor’s touch was astonishingly responsive – as supple in quiet, single-handed lyricism as in flurries of quicksilver virtuosity – while Park made stylish use throughout of portamento and her irrepressibly expressive vibrato … César Franck’s Violin Sonata – the second half of the programme – was a simultaneous showcase of Park’s huge palette of tone colours and of Grosvenor’s ability to conjure clarity from the densest of textures … After so much impassioned virtuosity, Schumann’s Abendlied Op 85 No 12 appeared stark in its simplicity. Yet it was here that Park and Grosvenor’s musical partnership achieved its most touching intimacy.”
