20-year-old Mexican pianist Gibran Alcocer is Charlotte’s Young Classical Star. When he was just 12, Gibran began producing music, starting with covers of songs on TikTok. He quickly made a name for himself and has since released several EPs. Charlotte selects his first piece, released last year: Idea 10.
Sunday 8 October
Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jung Jaeil is Charlotte’s Young Classical Star. The South Korean musician wrote his first film-score aged only 15, releasing his debut album five years later. He's now behind the soundtracks to Oscar-winning film Parasite and the extremely popular Netflix series that burst onto our screens during the pandemic: Squid Game. His latest album, Listen, diverges from his earlier style and he says of it: “to do what people don’t expect is what makes your music special”. Charlotte features the opening track from the album: 'The River'.
