Seong-Jin Cho piano

There’s no doubting the bright, forward technique of pianist Seong-Jin Cho.
— The Guardian (U.K.)

Widely considered one of the most distinctive artists of his generation, piano star Seong-Jin Cho attracted worldwide attention in 2015 when he won the International Chopin Piano Competition, one of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world. In his native South Korea, his concerts sell out in mere minutes and his multi-platinum album was the top-selling classical music release in a decade. Now his rapidly expanding career takes Cho to the U.S., where he recently made several high-profile recital debuts, notably in a sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall.
