by Cecilia Bartoli and Myung Whun Chung. Bizet: Chant d'amour by Cecilia Bartoli and Myung Whun Chung. This album for me represents a comeback after her dissapointing collection of Italian songs with James Levine. I had high expectations for that outing, her supposed core repertoire, but here she seems to buckle down and dot i's and cross t's in this effort. The recital starts with the simple and slight Bizet and Delibes and the even airier Viardot before jelling in the Berlioz and Ravel.
Myung-whun Chung (born 22 January 1953, Seoul) is a South Korean conductor and pianist. A student of Olivier Messiaen, he is particularly known for his interpretations of the French composer's works. At one time he and his sisters, violinist Kyung-wha Chung and cellist Myung-wha Chung, performed together as the Chung Trio. He was a joint second-prize winner in the 1974 International Tchaikovsky Competition. Chung studied conducting at the Mannes College of Music and the Juilliard School.

Myung-Whun Chung conducts two central works of Tchaikovsky’s oeuvre: his Piano Concerto n° 1, performed by 2015 Chopin Competition winner Seong-Jin Cho, and his Symphony n° 6, the Pathétique. Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 never fails to charm, even after multiple listens. From the stunning introduction that opens the door to the entire work to the sizzling finale, the composer crafted a lyrical masterpiece whose fantasy is only equalled by its virtuosity. South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, first prize winner at the 2015 Chopin competition, offers a dazzling interpretation
