Violinist Kyung Wha Chung & pianist Phillip Moll perform compositional works by Brahms, Kreisler and Elgar.
Korean violinist Kyung-wha Chung has been widely acclaimed both by critics and audiences.
Chung's career was at its peak during the '70s and '80s being ranked alongside the great violinists Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman.
She became one of the most characterful and best-loved violinists in the world. The total involvement she conveys comes not just from the actual notes but from her physical stance, revealing her love of the music and of the violin in every movement of muscle. Yet today, even when faced with her most spectacular recording of showpiece concertos, she will deny that she is a virtuoso. What she means is that technique is merely incidental to her communication through music. This dislike of showing off for its own sake accounts for her reluctance to concentrate on 'firework' pieces in this selection, preferring instead pieces she loves for other reasons.
