Cho Seong-Jin Named Artist-In-Residence At The Berliner Philharmoniker

Pianist Cho Seong-jin will be an artist-in-residence at the world’s premier orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, starting next year. He will be the first Korean to be appointed as a Berliner Philharmoniker in residence. He is the second Asian performer to be appointed, after Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida.

Cho Made His First Connection With The Berliner Philharmoniker

Cho made his first connection with the Berliner Philharmoniker six years ago when he performed Ravel’s Piano Concerto as a substitute for pianist Lang Lang. Andrea Zietzschmann, president of the Berliner Philharmoniker, said at a press conference for the Berliner Philharmoniker’s performance in Korea at the opera house of the Seoul Arts Center on Tuesday, “Cho Sung-jin is a very intuitive musician. He will join the Berliner Philharmoniker as an artist-in-residence next year. I think it’s a special relationship between He will be able to show more diverse aspects as a musician.”
