Embarking on an extensive tour across the United States, Seong-Jin Cho collaborates with prestigious orchestras, some for the first time, presenting a diverse repertoire of masterpieces by Ravel, Beethoven, and Chopin. This period in the United States marks several exciting debuts for Cho, including with the San Francisco Orchestra on January 18, 19, & 20, under the baton of Dalia Stasevska, where he will showcase Beethoven’s powerful Piano Concerto No. 3.

Additionally, Cho makes his debut with the Cleveland Orchestra on February 2 & 3 in Miami, followed by a performance on February 4 in Orlando, all led by Karina Canellakis. The program features Chopin’s romantically charged Piano Concerto No. 2. Following these engagements, Cho continues his debut streak with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on February 8 & 10, playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 under the baton of Gemma New.

The tour kicks off with a series of concerts alongside the Boston Symphony Orchestra, led by Andris Nelsons, where Cho takes on Ravel’s challenging and expressive Piano Concerto for the Left Hand on January 11, 12 & 13. Later in the month, he reunites with the BSO at Carnegie Hall on January 29. On January 25, 26 & 27, Cho returns to the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, to perform Beethoven’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 4.
