Seong-jin Cho

Leoš Janáček: From the Street
Maurice Ravel: Gaspard de la nuit
Fryderyk Chopin:
Scherzo No. 1 in B minor Op. 20
Scherzo No. 2 in B flat minor Op. 31
Scherzo No. 3 in C sharp minor Op. 39
Scherzo No. 4 in E Op. 54

The young South Korean pianist, who has recently recorded the four Scherzi, won the International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015 and now enjoys a flourishing recital and concert career. Among critical reactions to his playing, that of the Wall Street Journal is typical. ‘Cho is a master. He displayed an impressive variety of tonal colour and a remarkable technique, dispatched with jaw-dropping panache’.

    1. Yup – he generates a lot of enthusiasm from his followers. Would like to hear him play the Janacek, but I can’t make it that day (and probably as I write this the last two tickets have gone!)
