Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 2015 International Chopin Competition, has long been steeped in the music of Mozart. “I always fell happy, I always enjoy it, when I play Mozart,” he says. “For me, Mozart has everything; his music has so many layers.” For this album, Cho collaborates with conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, who are sensitive partners in the dramatic D minor Concerto, K. 466. Two major-key sonatas provide contrast: the joyful K. 281 and the technically demanding K. 332.
