Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho has released a new album featuring works by Mozart. It includes two sonatas, as well as the iconic Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor performed with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

I sat down with Seong-Jin to discuss his collaboration with Nézet-Séguin, as well as his earliest memories of listening to Mozart from his parents' opera recordings. We also discussed the dramatic shifts from minor to major in a couple of these works.

You can hear sound clips from this new Mozart album here.

Yours in good music,Mike Goldberg
