Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, and organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Classics programme has set the stage for Seong-Jin Cho’s debut performances in the region. Seong-Jin Cho has expressed a predilection for the works of Chopin that has become a defining principle of his artistry. His passion for Chopin will be reflected in the concert programme for his two concerts in Abu Dhabi, comprising in addition an inclination to also explore Beethoven’s mastery with the classic sonata form.
The programme also features the 19th century classic Fantasiestuecke by Robert Schumann, a piece that was inspired by the collection of short stories and essays. Concluding the evenings will be Debussy’s Images compositions, featuring an impressionist tone that will guide audiences through a transcendence of reality in the form of music.
