Virtual Concert Series | Volume Three
Volume Three of our Virtual Concert Series is presented by Yoonshin Song and Maria Meirelles in their performance of Movement 1 from Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 9.
During this performance of Movement One from Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 9, affectionately known as the Kreutzer Sonata, Yoonshin and Maria define true artistry through their masterful interpretation. Captured at the Tuesday Musicale's 2019 Artist of the Year Concert, this musical moment remains influential.

Throughout her career, Yoonshin has earned top prizes in international violin competitions such as the Wieniawski, Lipzier and first prize at the Stradivarius International Competition in the United States.
Maria Meirelles is widely acclaimed for her performances of Beethoven's thirty-two piano sonatas, notably the entire cycle in her New York City debut and a recording of them at Detroit's Orchestra Hall. A frequent recitalist at the Detroit Institute of Arts, she has also performed in Chicago, New York's Lincoln Center, the National Gallery in Washington and the New England Conservatory in Boston. Meirelles graduated from the Brazilian Conservatory at the age of 13. She continued her studies at the University of Michigan, earning Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees.
