Winner of the 17th International Chopin Piano Competition 2015, one of the most prestigious titles
in all of classical music, Seong-Jin Cho presents his first ever studio recording on DG. Combining
Chopins immensely popular 1st Piano Concerto with the almost equally popular 4 Ballades, this
coupling displays his brilliant fingerwork and mastery of characterization.
Cho recorded the work at Londons famous Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony
Orchestra and its new Principal Guest Conductor, Gianandrea Noseda. His interpretations of the
composers Ballades were set down at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Harburg, Germany.
