Pianist Ji to take listeners on a journey with recital at Rosarian

Pianist Ji will be giving an experimental and intimate recital on April 4 at the Rosarian Academy, Ji says.

The recital at 7 p.m. will mark the last performance of the season for the Palm Beach Chamber Music Society’s Young Concert Artists series.

Ji says that sometimes there is a gap between the audience and performer in classical music. With this recital, he wants to bring the audience into the story he’s telling, taking them on a musical journey.

“I want to close that gap,” says Ji, “by telling a story musically that is way more personal to me than any other program that I’ve done.”

Ji was born in South Korea and moved to New York City as a child to practice music. At age 10, he was the youngest person to have a solo debut with the New York Philharmonic.

Still living in New York, he is now 26 and has received positive reviews from publications including the New York Times and Chicago Tribune.

Ji will perform a program of Bach, Schumann, Ravel and Chopin. The recital will last about an hour with no intermission or applause until the performance is done.
