Lang Lang very much regrets that he is forced to withdraw from his recital appearance in Ottawa. He needs to allow additional time to recover fully from tendinitis in his left arm. We hope Lang Lang gets better soon and look forward to his appearing at the National Arts Centre in the future.
We are pleased to announce that stepping in for Lang Lang will be one of the brightest new stars of the classical world, South Korean pianist, Seong-Jin Cho, in his NAC debut. Seong-Jin also replaced Lang Lang on the Berlin Philharmonic’s recent tour of Europe and Asia to great accolade. Finishing third at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2011 at just 17 years old, Seong-Jin went on to win the prestigious International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015. We are thrilled to welcome Seong-Jin to the NAC stage to perform beloved piano works by Beethoven, Debussy and Chopin.
