Seong-Jin Cho, Gold Medalist at the 17th Chopin International Piano Competition (2015), will be appearing in Silicon Valley Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Trianon Theatre in downtown San Jose. The South Korean concert pianist was also awarded Third Prize at the famed International Tchaikovsky Competition in Russia (2011) and the influential Arthur Rubinstein in Tel Aviv (2014).
His success has been underscored by the pop-chart-topping status of his Deutsch Grammophon debut album and high-profile appearances at such prestigious concert halls as Carnegie Hall (June, 2017), a North American tour with the Warsaw Philharmonic, and appearances with the Liverpool Philharmonic and with the Russian National Orchestra under celebrated conductor Mikhaïl Pletnev
