Overview

Seong-Jin Cho, who has extraordinary technical ability but is an infrequent performer in France, has a gift for blending restraint with poetry.

Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the prestigious Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2015, was born in 1994, and is very conscious that Chopin is his lucky talisman. It therefore comes as no surprise that this former student of Michel Béroff at the Conservatoire de Paris opens his programme with Polonaise opus 44, whose central Tempo di mazurka offers respite from the tragic accents which run through the work. After a French interlude with Ravel – in which even the rare Menuet sur le nom de Haydn sounds French in style – the South Korean pianist transports us to Italy in the footsteps of Franz Liszt. Over the course of the second volume of Années de pèlerinage, we will admire Raphael and Michelangelo, listen to a Canzonetta attributed to Salvator Rosa, and read Petrarch and Dante. We can look forward to a marvellous Grand Tour.

Venue Info

Théâtre des Champs-Elysées - Paris
Location   15 Avenue Montaigne

The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is an entertainment venue situated near Avenue des Champs-Élysées, from which it takes its name. Its eponymous main hall may seat up to 1,905 people.

Commissioned by impresario Gabriel Astruc, the theatre was built from 1911 to 1913 upon the designs of brothers Auguste Perret and Gustave Perret following a scheme by Henry van de Velde, and became the first example of Art Deco architecture in the city. Less than two months after its inauguration, the Théâtre hosted the world premiere of the Ballets Russes' Rite of Spring, which provoked one of the most famous classical music riots.

At present, the theatre shows about three staged opera productions a year, mostly baroque or chamber works more suited to the modest size of its stage and orchestra pit. It also houses an important concert season. It is the home venue of the Orchestre National de France and the Orchestre Lamoureux and serves as a French base for the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra as well.

The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées and Ensemble orchestral de Paris play most of their concerts here too, along with other dance, chamber music, recital, and pop events.
