Testimonial

Power-driven Korean Hyuk Namkoong was first off with Nikolai Kapustins Sonata-Fantasia, which began its journey out east but wandered into Hollywood, Tin Pan Alley and 52nd Street, picking up widescreen and jazz influences wherever it walked. Hyuk gave it a knockout performance. I dont know if he got the jokes, but this listener, corpsing quietly in the back row, was dazzled. Michael Tumelty (Classical music writer), Herald Scotland, 29th February 2016
