Jae-Hyuck Cho :

Beethoven Piano Sonatas

Acclaimed pianist Jae-Hyuck Cho is one of the most active concert pianists in Korea, making over sixty appearances on stage annually. He has been described as "a pianist who is nearing perfection with extraordinary breadth of expression, flawless technique and composition, sensitivity and intelligence, insightful and detailed playing without exaggeration."

As the winner of the Pro Piano New York Recital Series Auditions, Cho made his New York debut in 1993 at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. He has since been active as a recitalist, a soloist and a chamber musician throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, appearing in venues including New York's Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, Seoul Arts Center of Korea, the Opera House of Monte Carlo, and Moscow's The Great Hall, Tchaikovsky Hall, and Rachmaninoff Hall.

He also has made appearances with numerous orchestras including the L'Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo of Monaco, New Jersey Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, Plano Symphony and San Angelo Symphony of Texas, Jalisco Symphony of Mexico, and most major orchestras in South Korea. His interest in collaborating with artists of different medium led him to work together in special projects with Korean National Ballet and an illusionist Lee Eun-gyeol, resulting in creating new ways to merge different genres together.

Cho's celebrated communication skills on stage opened doors for opportunities to expand his musical endeavors. He has been the guest artist in 252 episodes of ‘with Piano', a special corner of ‘Chang Il-bum's Family Music' on KBS Classic FM Radio, creating the format of ‘Live Lecture Concert on Air' where he shared commentaries and gave performances on a live radio broadcast. He also served as the program director, the host and the performer of concert series including Stradium's ‘Jae-Hyuck's Music Box', and Suwon SK Artrium's ‘Cho Jae- Hyuck's Morning Classic'. Starting in 2017, he is appearing as the new host and performer for Seoul Arts Center's signature concert series ‘The 11o'clock Concert'.

Born in ChunCheon, South Korea, Cho began piano studies at age five. He moved to New York to continue his piano studies at the Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Division with Solomon Mikowsky, and moved on to receive Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Herbert Stessin and Jerome Lowenthal. He received the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Manhattan School of Music, studying with Nina Svetlanova.
