Violinist Sarah Chang will perform with the Asian Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Chung Myung-Whun at a concert to be held at the Seoul Arts Center on Dec. 31.
She will play Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 in what will be her first new year spent in Korea, prior to flying to Cologne on Jan. 3.
Sarah is known as an exponent of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, but from next year is to add Brahms and Mozart and Bach. Sarah has been performing since she was 6 years old and the late Yehudi Menuhin described her as the most wonderful, perfect, ideal violinist he had ever heard.
At the age of 8, she performed the Paganini Concerto with the New York Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta with just one day's notice to an overwhelming response from the audience.
She has released seven classical albums, a feat difficult for anyone to achieve at just 19 years of age.
