Handel’s keyboard suites have remained strangers to most concert pianists. Seong-Jin Cho hopes that his latest album will shed new light on some of the most heartfelt of all Baroque music. The Handel Project contains three of the South Korean pianist’s favorite suites from Handel’s first collection of Suites de pièces pour le clavecin. These are coupled with Brahms’s virtuosic Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, which Cho believes to be “the best variations that have ever been written.”
