Lionel Bringuier will lead two performances with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra after their former music director Chung Myung-whun has had to withdraw due to health reasons. He joins the ensemble for performances celebrating the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the Deutsche Grammophon label at the Seoul Arts Centre on December 6 and 7.
On December 6, Pianist Cho Seong-jin, winner of the 2015 International Chopin Piano Competition, interprets Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20. Completing the program is Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, a piece that the composer claimed was “the best thing [he] ever composed or shall compose.”
Internationally acclaimed violinist, Anne-Sophie Mutter, will join the ensemble onstage December 7, playing Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, a true showpiece for a master violinist. Bringuier leads Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony to conclude the program.
