Cho has established a concert series of piano works by Robert Schumann in six different states. Her enthusiasm for Robert Schumann has led her to write an article “What makes Robert Schumann Schumann: Schumann’s creation of fantasy borrowed from literature, especially E. T. A. Hoffman’s novel The Life and Opinions of Tomcat Murr​.”

REVIEWS

“Your Schumann is outstanding. Truly inspirational performances.”

Slawomir Dobrzanski for The American Prize

"Your playing was so musical, sensitive, and full of color. Your deep understanding of each piece emotionally and structurally was very satisfying to both my heart and my mind. You gave yourself so deeply to the music that I was completely engaged by your performance and very moved by it. Your technique went beyond the typical pianistic virtuosity, displaying incredible tonal control, right down to the softest sounds. We were in a different world by the time you finished, with the audience hushed throughout and lingering in their seats at the end, even though they had deadlines to meet. Thank you for sharing your artistry with us, I would very much enjoy hearing you again."

Karin Edwards, Professor of Piano and Acting Chair of Keyboard Studies at Wheaton College
