New release: Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 and Scherzi
“Chopin’s music is very honest, it reflects his emotional personality and it shows that he was not afraid to communicate that to his audience and to the world.”
After the success of his first studio album for Deutsche Grammophon, featuring Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1 and the Four Ballades, Seong-Jin looks forward to the release of his recording of Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto and the Four Scherzi on 27 August 2021. For the concerto, Seong-Jin once again joined forces with the London Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Gianandrea Noseda, a conductor with whom he has enjoyed successful collaborations in the past. The release ties in with his highly anticipated performance of the concerto at the Olympic Park in Seoul with the Korean Symphony Orchestra under Shi-Yeon Sung.
The album is available for pre-order today and you can already listen to the performance of Scherzo No. 2 here.
