Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Op. 11 of course was originally written for clarinet and only later published for violin... The Op.11 trio is full of felicitous touches and corporate sonority The Allegro con brio goes with verve and is most attractively paced – one certainly doesn’t miss the clarinet in this performance. The Archduke is mellifluous and relaxed, anchored by the splendid playing of Myung-Whun Chung. The string phrases are conciliatory rather than weighted or trenchant – though they’re not over-refined either. On their own terms the Chung trio meets the challenges of the work deftly and responsibly...
