Watch: phenomenal Chopin from Seong-Jin Cho

Gramophone Thu 5th January 2017

The 2015 International Chopin Competition winner live at the Yellow Lounge

Winner of the 2015 International Chopin Competition, Seong-Jin Cho's first studio recording for DG (featuring Chopin's First Concerto and the Four Ballades) is reviewed in the January 2017 issue of Gramophone, with Jeremy Nicholas noting: 'it is not so much his effortless clarity and articulation or lightly pedalled fioritura that capture the attention as much as his ability to let the music breathe. Every time the first movement’s ineffably lovely second subject returns, it becomes more poignant in Cho’s hands.'

Cho recently gave a live solo recital at the Yellow Lounge, including a very fine performance of Chopin's Polonaise No 6, Op 53, which you can enjoy below:
