​Jimin Oh-Havenith plays Beethoven - Transparent depiction of inner developments

This new recording by Jimin Oh-Havenith presents three of Beethoven's most famous, beautiful, but also most demanding piano sonatas. In addition to the dramatic F minor Sonata, Op. 57 ('Appassionata'), the pianist plays the late Sonatas in E major, Op. 109, and C minor, Op. 111, the last of the 32 piano sonatas.

The exploration and crossing of boundaries can be seen as a central motif in Beethoven's compositions in general, and in his piano music in particular. While the variation movement in the 'Appassionata' is flanked by rugged outer movements and the ending is a lively dance, Opp. 109 and 111 close with extended, expressive variation movements. In the finale of Op. 109 and in the simple, yet rapturously poignant Arietta of Op. 111 with the metamorphoses in its five variations, Beethoven enters uncharted territory. Here, Beethoven not only reaches expressive extremes, but also challenges his instrument: the keyboard range is stretched to the limit. The listener experiences the end of the C minor Sonata as a farewell to the world and to the genre of the sonata itself, but also as a beginning of something new and unknown.

Jimin Oh-Havenith's interpretation convinces through carefully chosen tempi, which facilitate a vivid and transparent presentation of the thematic structures and internal developments. The clarity and expressiveness of her playing provides an immediate experience of Beethoven's inexhaustible imaginative power and the transformation of the poetic idea.

In diesem reinen Beethoven-Programm mit drei schwergewichtigen Sonaten zeigt sich die koreanische Pianistin Jimin Oh-Havenith als subtile Gestalterin mit großem lyrischem Empfinden, der es zudem gelingt, ganz neue Töne anzuschlagen. Sie scheut zwar die Kontraste nicht, aber ihr Spiel ist nie streng, herb oder gar laut. Dazu kommen dann noch eine absolut brillante Technik, eine außergewöhnliche Klarheit des Anschlags und eine überzeugende Artikulation.

Das sensible Musikantentum der Pianistin kann man durchaus als feminin bezeichnen, aber auch die Spontaneität des Interpretierens und die Wärme durchaus persönlicher Ansichten prägen diese interessanten Deutungen.

Die Tonaufnahme ist von bestechender Klarheit, ideal räumlich und präsent zugleich.


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.
