Performance Information

“An eloquent and genuinely accomplished artist…. To a formidable keyboard technique, he adds both sensitivity and a quirky interpretive personality.” – San Francisco Chronicle

It’s become a commonplace to refer to Seong-Jin Cho as a “rising star” of the piano—but at this point, it might be time to retire the word “rising.” Already a favorite guest soloist of the National Symphony Orchestra, he has enjoyed sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Los Angeles’s Disney Hall, and many other premier concert halls and has won the prestigious Chopin Competition (joining a lineage that includes Martha Argerich and Maurizio Pollini). As the Washington Post put it: “Cho appears to have the musical potential to take his place alongside the greats of the past.”
