Seong-Jin Cho interviews with classical radio about new Debussy recording

Bookmark and Share

Following his two previous Chopin albums on the Yellow Label, it is entirely fitting that Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 2015 International Chopin Piano Competition, should turn to Debussy for his third album. Towards his life's close, the French composer edited the piano works of Chopin, an experience that reignited his creativity, opening his heart to music he had loved since childhood. In turn, Cho's connection to Debussy runs deep. "I have always loved Debussy's music, but my feeling for it has deepened during my studies with Michel Béroff at the Paris Conservatoire," Cho recalls. "Michel never presses me to accept his ideas on interpretation, which would be so easy for such a great master of Debussy's music. His lessons are like meetings in which we discuss my playing, talk about music and art, and allow things to develop naturally."

In conjunction with the album release, Seong-Jin Cho will be speaking today with Classical Radio Stations throughout the US including; C24 Network, MOOD Media KDFC in San Francisco, KMFA: Austin, WCPE: Wake Forest NC, WCVE: Richmond VA,and Statewide Networks - Minnesota Public Radio and Net Nebraska.
