One of the great modern version of these two famous violin concertos, released on CD in 1992 and available for the first time on vinyl.

Chung sustains spacious speeds very persuasively indeed. She's freely flexible in her approach to Beethoven, as Tennstedt is too, but magnetically keeping an overall command. The element of vulnerability in Chung's reading adds to the emotional weight, above all in the slow movement, which in it's wistful tenderness is among the most beautiful on disc. As for the outer movements, they're full of flair, with a live event bringing few if any flaws of ensemble. Gramophone (about Beethoven) Altogether an exceptionally attractive release. Gramophone (about the whole album) ... a sound of utter resplendency, a brilliantly shining tone right across the instrument; a projection to make light of the acoustic distances to be travelled... extraordinary music-making. The Sunday Times (about Kyung-Wha Chung recital, 2014)
