“Yoo – who recorded the Sibelius Concerto for Deutsche Grammophon several years ago – has an elegant style, even in the most treacherous virtuosities. The first movement was an introduction to her big, relaxed sound and stunning technique. Her opening phrases had ethereal beauty. The cadenza, an effortless display of arpeggios and runs, was as thrilling as I’ve ever heard.”
