“This latest Chopin Competition winner can stand proud next to the likes of such illustrious past winners as Pollini, Argerich and Zimerman,” wrote Pianist magazine after Seong-Jin Cho triumphed in Warsaw in 2015. Now in his mid-20s, he is giving recitals in the world’s most prestigious venues and performing with major orchestras and conductors. Following his first visit to the Verbier Festival in 2018, he returns with a recital that combines works of the Romantic period – Liszt, Franck and Brahms – with Berg’s op.1 Sonata, composed in the early years of the 20th century and poetically presaging atonality.
