Chung at her best
P. Rah | Sion, Switzerland | 08/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is only the second recital disc she has done (the first was 'Con amore' in 1987). Chung is at her best here, warm and fiery at the same time - unlike just the impulsive Chung of 20 years ago. Ever since the late 1980s, her playing suffered from an uncertainty in the technique and expression - burnout maybe?. Anyway, since the middle of 1990s. her playing blossomed into a warmer, more 'pleasant' playing. Still fiery, but as I said, warm. And this disc shows Chung at her peak. She fully realsised the different facets of emotions the pieces can convey to the listener. Listen to 'Tambourin chinois' she really captures that 'Oriental feel' about the piece (very Viennese at the same time too) - I am Korean, so I know about these things (except for that Viennse thing!)! The whole disc is a pleasure to listener and I recommend every bit of this disc to anyone interested in Chung's playing. Buuuuuuuuuuuuy it!"
Heavenly beauty

"My only regret for this recording is that Chung chose to record only the fifth movement of Stravinsky. I recently heard her playing the whole five movements of Stravinsky's Duo Concertante. I hope someday soon she will record the all five movements of Stravinsky. This Souvenir album is a beauty of beyond description."
She is still passionate

"Kyung-Wha Chung has been one of the greatest violinists along with Perlman and Zukerman.
This is her recording of recital pieces since her sensational recording 'Con Amore' more than a decade ago.
Her sound is beautiful on this recording. Not Sarah Chang or Gil Shaham beautiful, She is making Kyung-Wha Chung sound, Which no violinists can make. She made us cry, she made us freeze, and she now makes us laugh with these light pieces. Listen to her Bach Air on G. And if you feel her, you will cry for sure."
