News: The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra has announced that pianist Seong-Jin Cho is the Artist-in-Residence of the 2024-25 season

Seong-Jin Cho was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1994. He made his recital debut at age 11, and in 2009 became the youngest-ever winner of the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition. In 2011, he won Third Prize in the International Tchaikovsky Competition. Then in 2015, he was awarded First Prize in the International Chopin Piano Competition and suddenly became a major star of the music world.
He has performed in prestigious concert halls the world over, and receives many enthusiastic offers from top orchestras and conductors.
As one of the world’s busiest pianists and a leading musician of his generation, Seong-Jin Cho has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in a number of concerts.

Each season the Berlin Philharmonic’s artist in residence program selects one soloist whose talent has been highly praised, and in that season the selected musician participates in many projects with the orchestra.
In recent years, Lisa Batiashvili and Patricia Kopatchinskaja have been selected as artists in residence. Being named artist in residence with the Berlin Philharmonic, which is considered the world’s leading orchestra, brings a great deal of attention from the music world and fans, and can be said to be proof of the artist’s special and unique qualities.
Over the 2024/25 season, Cho will have concerto performances with the orchestra in October 2024, March 2025 and April 2025 as well as offering two unique chamber music evenings, one with musicians from the Berliner Philharmoniker and the other with members of the Herbert-von-Karajan-Akademie in January 2025.

A Japan tour with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle is planned for November. On that tour he will perform the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 and so on.
