Seong-Jin Cho says his favourite pianists include Radu Lupu and Krystian Zimerman, and you believe it when hearing his effortless, elastic piano playing. The interpretations of the Korean newcomer captivate us by combining a broad palette of timbres with flawless technique, profound thoughts and emotional expression. This makes him an ideal partner to Iván Fischer, who knows how to take on music of varied origin with stylistic accuracy – from a whirling fairy-tale opera prelude to an homage to nature à la Dvořák.
