Winner of this year's Chopin competition to collaborate with Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra Updated: 2021-11-25 17:33:39 KST

Right, how about classical performances? Are there any recommendations that you would like to make?

Recently, many global artists have started touring Asia again.
One of the virtuosos who is coming to Seoul is Bruce Liu -- the newly crowned winner of the prestigious 18th International Chopin Piano Competition that took place in October this year.
This 24-year-old's style has been described as elegant and jaw-dropping, and classical music lovers in South Korea will be excited to hear that Bruce Liu is going to collaborate with Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra at Seoul Arts Center this Saturday as part of his marathon tour schedule.
He is going to perform Chopin piano Concerto No. 1 -- which he played at the final round of this year's Chopin competition.
The Chopin competition has been held every five years since 1955, but due to the pandemic, 2020's competition instead took place in 2021, which reportedly led to some stellar performances as there was one extra year to practice.

Fans of classical music will definitely be anticipating Bruce Liu's show. So it's this Saturday at Seoul Arts Center, but what if we can't make the time? Are there any other ways to enjoy the collaborative stage?

Yes, those who would like to rather stay at home can see the performance through Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra's Naver TV channel with the ticket fee less than ten dollars. Deutsche Grammophon actually released an album of Bruce Liu's live recordings from the various stages of the competition, and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra is doing an event offering the album if you send the picture of yourself enjoying the livestreamed show, so classic lovers should give it a try
