Pianist Hyunjung Gloria Kim, who impressed the audience with the sold-out recital of "Chopin in the Movie" at the Seoul Arts Center, presents self-portrait-like sonatas that resemble Beethoven's early-middle-late life with the subtitle "Finding Immortal Beloved, For Elise" in the upcoming performance" Beethoven in the Movie."

"Even today, hundreds of years later, Beethoven's music remains a deep emotion in our hearts."
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) always wrote letters. Who was Beethoven's immortal beloved? These letters are full of mystery all over the place where the payee is unclear... After Beethoven's death, three letters came out of his belongings. "My angel, my everything, my true self … Let's find out the existence of ".
What kind of woman did he think while writing the song? In addition to "For Elise," which is familiar to anyone, you can see hidden stories with the immortal lovers given to Beethoven's sonatas, including "Moonlight," "Bichang," "Tempest," "Waldstein," and finally "Piano Sonata No. 32." In particular, the piano sonata seems to contain Beethoven's hopeful message to mankind and his diary. It contains a message of overcoming the crisis as if it were in a crisis.
Beethoven's hearing loss, which began in his 30s, was like a divine punishment for him, whose music was everything in his life. The sudden loss of hearing and suicide note written in Hailegenstadt, Austria, show that he is a composer who overcame his fate beyond suffering.
The despair faced by losing hearing, the joy felt by enduring pain through creation, the sadness of not being with a beloved lover, the relief barely gained through nature...In this concert, we will listen to Beethoven's joys, sorrows and destiny through sonatas.
