For his sixth album on Deutsche Grammophon, pianist Seong-Jin Cho returns to the music of Frédéric Chopin with Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 · Scherzi. The album features these best-loved works in interpretations characterised by thoughtful poetry and youthful ardour.
With an overwhelming talent and innate musicality, Seong-Jin Cho has made his mark as one of the consummate talents of his generation and most distinctive artists on the current music scene. His thoughtful and poetic, assertive and tender, virtuosic and colourful playing can combine panache with purity and is driven by an impressive natural sense of balance.
This album is released today, 27 August 2021, including in the new special high-quality spatial listening experience of Dolby Atmos on Apple Music.
