Pizzicato 05/2020, Remy Franck

In this pure Beethoven programme with three heavyweight sonatas, Korean pianist Jimin Oh-Havenith shows herself to be a subtle performer with great lyrical sensitivity, who also succeeds in highlighting new aspects. Although she does not avoid contrasts, her playing is never austere, harsh or even loud. In addition, she has an absolutely brilliant technique, an extraordinary clarity of touch and a convincing articulation.

The sensitive musicality of the pianist can certainly be described as feminine, but we also like the spontaneity and the warmth of thoroughly personal views.

The sound recording has a great clarity, it is ideally spatial and present at the same time.
