Event Info

Seong-Jin Cho brings his “world-class technique, polished to a high sheen of expression” (Los Angeles Times) to Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, aptly nicknamed Emperor for its power and regal temperament. Marek Janowski, in his Philharmonic debut, leads Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, with a gorgeous Romanza that portrays the composer’s beloved wife, Clara.

Conductor

Conductor Marek Janowski, one of the great masters of the music of the German tradition, is recognized throughout the world for his interpretation of the works of Wagner, Strauss, Bruckner and Brahms, Hindemith, and the Second Viennese School. His artistic path has led him from assistant positions to his appointment as general music director in Freiburg and Dortmund. There is not one world-renowned opera house where he has not been a regular guest since the late 1970s, from The Metropolitan Opera in New York to the Bavarian Staatsoper in Munich; from Chicago and San Francisco to Hamburg; from Vienna and Berlin to Paris. Marek Janowski stepped back from the opera scene in the 1990s to concentrate on the great German symphonic repertoire. Between 1984 and 2000, as musical director of the Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, Mr. Janowski raised that orchestra to a position of preeminence in France and abroad. He held the title of chief conductor of the Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne (1986–90) and was first guest conductor of the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (1997–99). From 2000 to 2005 he served as music director of the Orchestre philharmonique de Monte-Carlo. From 2002 to 2016 he was artistic director of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra; his Wagner opera cycle with the orchestra in Berlin’s Philharmonie was held to have set a new standard of performance in concertante opera. Marek Janowski’s return to the Dresden Philharmonic (where he had held the position of chief conductor from 2001 to 2003) marks the city’s confidence since the opening of the new Kulturpalast Dresden. His distinguished discography, built over the past 30 years, includes the iconic recording of the Wagner’s Ring Cycle with the Staatskapelle Dresden (1980–83) as well as several other complete operas and symphonic cycles, many of which have been awarded international prizes.

Seong-Jin Cho is rapidly embarking on a world-class career and considered one of the most distinctive artists of his generation. He was brought to the world’s attention in 2015 when he won the First Prize at the Chopin International Competition in Warsaw. In January 2016 he signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. The first recording featured Chopin’s First Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda, and the Four Ballades. A solo Debussy recording was released in 2017; in 2018, he released a Mozart album featuring sonatas and the D-minor Concerto with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Yannick-Nézet-Séguin.

An active recitalist, Mr. Cho performs in many of the world’s most prestigious concert halls including Carnegie Hall, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Los Angeles’s Walt Disney Hall, Munich’s Prinzregententheater, and Liederhalle Stuttgart, as well as in the Berlin Philharmonic concert series.

Upcoming engagements include debut recitals at Frankfurt’s Alte Oper, Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Helsinki’s Musikkitalo, Kennedy Center, Victoria Hall Geneva, London’s Wigmore Hall, and Bridgewater Hall Manchester, and returns to Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Konzerthaus Vienna, Duke Performances in Durham, North Carolina, and the Verbier Festival.

Mr. Cho collaborates with conductors including Simon Rattle, Valery Gergiev, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Gianandrea Noseda, Antonio Pappano, Myung-Whun Chung, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jaap van Zweden, Yannick Nézet-Seguin, Gustavo Dudamel, Yuri Temirkanov, Marek Janowski, Vasily Petrenko, Jakub Hrůša, Leonard Slatkin, and Mikhail Pletnev.

Born in 1994 in Seoul, Seong-Jin Cho started piano studies at six and gave his first public recital at eleven. In 2012 he moved to Paris to study with Michel Béroff at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique, graduating in 2015. He is now based in Berlin.
