Seong-Jin Cho, Piano

Seong-Jin Cho by Harald Hoffmann, DG
After a sold-out Carnegie Hall debut, the award-winning Seong-Jin Cho returns with Austrian, French, and Russian repertoire that makes for an evening of great pianism. Schubert summons a grand orchestral sound from the piano in his surging "Wanderer Fantasy," while in contrast Debussy uses delicate timbres and hazy harmonies to paint sound pictures. The paintings in Mussorgsky’s masterwork are vividly depicted in striking music that’s bold in character and sweeping in its power. Cho’s “lucid and shimmering sound” (Financial Times) will remind you why he is an International Chopin Piano Competition winner.

Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition 

While Ravel’s arrangement of Pictures at an Exhibition is thrilling, the original version for solo piano has its own unique colors and power. Mussorgsky brings his friend Viktor Hartmann’s paintings to life with music that is both evocative and virtuosic. A grand-opening promenade depicting a stroll through the exhibition, the eerie grandeur of Roman catacombs, and the jubilant ringing of bells in the climactic “Great Gate of Kiev” are but a few episodes in a work brimming with color and excitement.
