Programme

“There are few poets at the piano today – one of them is Seong Jin Cho,” was the verdict of Simon Rattle after the young Korean made his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2017. Now, under the direction of Iván Fischer, he will play Franz Liszt’s rapturous Second Piano Concerto. The programme also includes Antonín Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony. “The melodies pour out of me,” Dvořák wrote during the composition, and indeed this is a work of intoxicating inspiration and energy.
