EXO's Chen Is Highly Praised By World-Renowned Pianist And Composer Steve Barakatt

Steve Barakatt had nothing but kind things to say about EXO’s Chen!

The pianist-composer made an appearance on the September 8 episode of KBS2’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.”

Steve Barakatt first performed in Korea in 1995, and has since returned to the country around 100 times. His music is familiar to much of the Korean public, with two of his pieces being used by high speed rail system the Korea Train eXpress (KTX) and another once used as a factory ringtone for cell phones.

Over the last two decades, he notably worked with many Korean artists such as Wheesung, John Park, and Girls’ Generation, to name a few.

When asked which Korean artist was the most memorable, Steve Barakatt chose Chen. He praised Chen for his talent and his passion.

The two musicians collaborated back in 2016, when Chen performed John Lennon’s “Imagine” with Steve Barakatt at his concert in Korea. The performance was a part of UNICEF’s “Imagine Project,” a global campaign drew attention to the challenges that children face and imagined a world where all children are “living life in peace.”

Steve Barakatt also recently shared some nostalgic photos with Chen ahead of his most recent trip to Korea.
