Thursday, May 11, 2017

Kyung Wha Chung recently joined Gramophone's Editor-in-Chief James Jolly for a live-streamed conversation. We now present the full, fascinating discussion

On Monday evening we broadcast a live-streamed conversation with one of the great violinists of our time, Kyung Wha Chung, on Facebook. It proved to be exceptionally popular, and now you can enjoy the entire evening, complete with archive video clips of Kyung Wha performing at various key stages of her career, below.

During the course of an engrossing conversation with Gramophone's Editor-in-Chief James Jolly, Kyung Wha talks about her childhood, her violin lessons (and auditioning for a terrifying Jascha Heifetz!), the challenges of performing with conductors such as Klaus Tennstedt and Carlo Maria Giulini, and her remarkable career in the recording studio.
