For the first time ever in the region, South Korean rising star and Chopin competition gold medalist Seong-Jin Cho will be playing for Abu Dhabi Classics in two performances: one in New York University Abu Dhabi and the other in Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara located next to the entrancing desert oasis of Liwa (Western Region).
One of today’s most interesting young piano players, Seong-Jin Cho, has chosen a programme perfectly in line with his artistic choices. His predilection for Chopin has become a principle of his artistry and is reflected in the concert programme together with a tendency to explore Beethoven’s mastery with the classic sonata form as well as its later variations.
