Guinness Record Concert for Professor Jegal Sam
First generation Busan musician, pianist Jegal Sam
'Fantasia Sentimentale', composed by Jegal Sam in 1946
'Moonlight Sonata', Beethoven
Aiming to become the oldest solo performing pianist at the age of 95
The concert will set a new Guinness World Record
Beating the previous record set by Arthur Rubinstein who died aged 94
I'm grateful to have a concert, grateful for my health, grateful that my fingers move.
It's all gratitude.
The piano and I have an inseparable relationship.
I was a music teacher at Gyeongnam Girls' High School
then at Pusan National University.
I've lived as a piano teacher for my whole life
so my relationship with the piano is absolutely inseparable.
For as long as it is possible.
I'll be 100 in four years
so I'm not actively seeking to achieve much more
When an opportunity presents itself, I'll take it.
