Pianist Cho Seong-jin is back in his home country for the first time since his win at the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Poland last autumn.
He and five other Chopin winners are performing in a gala concert in Seoul on Tuesday. At a press event, the prodigy said he will be releasing another album with classical label Deutsche Grammophon.
His first solo album was released in November on the same label and included 30 tracks of live performances. It posted record sales here with more than 80,000 copies sold last year alone.
Cho said that he is also excited about the opportunity to record a performance for his forthcoming album with maestro Chung Myung-whun in Dresden this April.
