Bookmark and Share

2015 Chopin Competition winner Seong-Jin Cho explores Debussy's piano music on this new collection. Following his two best-selling all-Chopin albums, the pianist brings together some of the French composer's most popular works and cycles, including Suite bergamasque (with the beloved Clair de lune) and Children's Corner. The latter contains favorites of every aspiring pianist, but despite its name it is "grown-up music," says Cho. Images, meanwhile, he describes as "an absolute masterpiece, incredibly atmospheric and highly poetic."
