1 Chopin_Piano Concerto No. 2 - Scherzi  

For his sixth and latest Deutsche Grammophon album, pianist Seong-Jin Cho returns to the music of Frédéric Chopin with Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 · Scherzi. The album is set for international release on 27 August 2021 and features these best-loved works in interpretations characterised by thoughtful poetry and youthful ardour. For the concerto, Seong-Jin Cho teams up with the London Symphony Orchestra andGianandrea Noseda, a conductor with whom he has enjoyed a productive and stimulating collaboration over the past five years. The digital version of the album will include three bonus solo tracks: the "Revolutionary" Étude, Op. 10 no. 12, Impromptu No. 1, Op. 29 and Nocturne, Op. 9 no. 2.

Cho came to worldwide prominence in 2015 when he won First Prizeat the Warsaw International Chopin Competition, the first South Korean pianist to achieve this feat. His technical mastery coupled with his artistic maturity – particularly remarkable given that he was only 21 years old – impressed a jury of seventeen members, including the 1970 competition winnerGarrick Ohlsson, who praised Cho as a "remarkable, complete young artist". After the success of his first studio album for the Yellow Label, featuring Chopin's First Concerto and the 4 Ballades, also recorded with the LSO and Noseda,Cho is now realising his wish to follow that release with what he considers to be its logical companion, a pairing of the Second Concerto and the four Scherzi.
