The 2015 Chopin Competition winner Seong-Jin Cho explores the music of Claude Debussy on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the great French composer’s death.

After two best-selling all-Chopin releases, it’s fitting that Seong-Jin dedicates his third CD to some of Debussy’s most popular piano works.

Chopin, who spent his main creative years in Paris, was considered by Debussy to be the most important composer of his time, and for Seong-Jin’s, whose formative years have been spent in Paris, Debussy is a composer with whom he feels a very strong affinity.

For his new album Seong-Jin has brought together some of Debussy’s most popular works and cycles such as Images I & II, Suite bergamasque (including the beloved “Clair de Lune”) and Children’s Corner, which contains favourites of every young aspiring piano student.

Debussy marked the beginning of Seong-Jin’s career, as Children’s Corner was on the programme of his first ever appearance on stage.

“unequivocally brilliant” – Telegraph

“undeniable technical prowess” – The Guardian

“Cho boasts, as old-fashioned as this may sound, a poetic sensibility that evokes the fantastical sound world of the early Romantics.” – San Francisco Chronicle
