Seong-Jin Cho has made a name for himself internationally as the winner of the legendary Chopin Competition and as a “poet at the piano” (Simon Rattle). This season, he is the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Artist in Residence, performing piano concertos by Beethoven, Shostakovich, and others. In addition to the dates of his residency, you will find a detailed interview with Seong-Jin Cho on our website. Here you can find out when microphones make him nervous, that a pianist’s work never ends, and why the sound of the piano cannot be replaced by artificial intelligence.
