Seong Jin Cho 2022 Tour Dates In Asia

Written by on 22/07/2022

Seong Jin’s world tour is going strong with dates extending to early 2023. Japan, South Korea and Taiwan dates are secured for August and October 2022, respectively.

Intense reflection and expressive insight are among the attributes cultivated by Seong-Jin Cho, qualities apt to connect with audiences at the deepest levels of imagination and emotion.

Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “a master of the virtuosic miniature”, he has received equal praise for his eloquent readings of concertos and larger-scale solo works by composers from Mozart to Shostakovich.

Earlier this year, Seong-Jin Cho released six pieces for the piano – the Op. 118: VI. Intermezzo in E Flat Minor. Andante, largo emesto – composed by Johannes Brahms.

RECORDINGS

Cho’s album release in 2021 sees him reunited with the LSO and Gianandrea Noseda to continue his exploration of the music of Chopin. Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 · Scherzi is set for release on 27 August 2021, and the digital version of the album will also include three bonus solo tracks: the “Revolutionary” Étude, Op. 10 no. 12, Impromptu No. 1, Op. 29 and Nocturne, Op. 9 no. 2.

His first studio album for the Yellow Label, released in November 2016, featured more music by Chopin: the Four Ballades, and the Piano Concerto No.1 in E minor, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda.

ABOUT SEONG-JIN CHO

Born in Seoul on 28 May 1994, Seong-Jin Cho began playing piano at the age of six and gave his first public performance at eleven. In September 2008 he won the Sixth Moscow International Frederick Chopin Competition for Young Pianists and the following year took First Prize at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan.

Having moved to Paris in 2012 to study with Michel Béroff at the Conservatoire, he is now based in Berlin.

The South Korean pianist was catapulted to fame when he won First Prize at the 17th Chopin International Piano Competition in October 2015. When Deutsche Grammophon rush-released performances recorded live during the Competition, the all-Chopin album was propelled to the No.1 spot in the Korean pop chart on the strength of pre-release orders alone.
