The musical cycle the "Débuts" of the Flâneries Musicales de Reims continues with Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 17th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw.
Born in 1994 in Seoul, Seong-Jin started studying the piano at 6. He studied at the Conservatoire de Paris where he was the pupil of Michel Beroff. He was brought to the world’s attention in October 2015 when he won First Prize at the Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw (four years before he had won 3rd Prize at the Tchaikovsky competition, aged only 17). With his overwhelming talent and natural musicality, Seong-Jin Cho rapidly embarked on a world-class career. Seong-Jin has performed with some of the world’s major orchestras including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Mariinsky Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra... under renowned conductors such as Myung-Whun Chung, Lorin Maazel, Marek Janowski, Mikhail Pletnev, Valery Gergiev, and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
For his "Débuts" at the Flâneries Musicales de Reims, the Corean pianist interprets Mozart's Rondo in A Minor and Schubert's Piano Sonata No. 19
