When Seong-Jin Cho won the gold medal at the 2015 Chopin Competition in Warsaw, he became the first South Korean to do so and vaulted to rock-star status in his homeland. His next record even outsold albums by popular K-Pop bands. Since then, Cho, born in 1994, has persuaded even critics who distrust competitions that he is a major talent. “Don’t let the gold medal fool you,” wrote the San Francisco Chronicle. “He’s the real deal.”

For his Stanford Live debut, Cho has chosen works by Debussy and Chopin.

It is a thrill to be able to present Seong-Jin Cho at this point in his young career with his star so rapidly rising. Responsible for a seismic classical music boom in his native Korea, he has been exciting audiences of all ages with his incredible technique and musicality.
