In 2015 Seong-jin Cho, who was born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1994, won the Fryderyk Chopin Prize in Warsaw – the most desired prize for pianists, previously won by Martha Argerich (who is now a member of the jury), Maurizio Pollini and Krystian Zimerman. This young musician’s sensibility immediately captured the attention of the most prestigious international musical organisations and festivals, as demonstrated by his recitals in the most important concert halls and his collaborations with great orchestras and with conductors like Leonard Slatkin, Simon Rattle, Lorin Maazel, Myung-Whun Chung, Valery Gergiev, Mikhail Pletnev, Antonio Pappano, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Michael Tilson-Thomas. Deutsche Grammophon gave Cho a contract: his first CD included Chopin’s First Concerto (with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda); a more recent one contains solo piano music by Debussy. And it is precisely Debussy’s fluid, heart-wrenching Images and four of his Preludes that make up the core of this closing concert of the Quartetto’s season. The evening opens with the musical journey of Schubert’s celebrated “Wanderer” Fantasy, but the second part will showcase the pianist’s virtuosity through the spare, savage original version of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. It is a highly demanding programme, and it will shed light on the manifold qualities of this artist and on his personality as an interpreter.
