“ Horowitz was a one-off and a complete original, someone for whom the description of Last of the Romantics is fully justified. We are unlikely to see his like again.” MusicWeb International, February 2015

The Seasons, Op. 37b: October ('Autumn Song')


The ECM New Series debut of Myung Whun Chung features the widely celebrated conductor as pianist. Recorded at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice in July 2013, the album marks the first occasion that Chung has recorded solo. In a performer’s note, he describes the album as a gift for younger listeners, as well as a personal thanks to those who share his love of this music.

Chung’s touch and sensitivity for dynamics cast a new light on familiar pieces - Debussy’s Clair de lune, two Chopin Nocturnes and a pair of Schubert Impromptus, Beethoven’s Für Elise, Schumann’s Träumerei and Arabeske, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart - as they are experienced in a gently flowing sequence which also serves to highlight affinities between the compositions.

Although conducting now fully occupies his professional life, Chung (born 1953 in Seoul) made his debut as pianist with the Seoul Philharmonic at the age of seven. He later studied the piano with Maria Curcio, the last and favourite pupil of Artur Schnabel. In 1974 he was joint second prize-winner in the Tchaikovsky Competition (where he performed Tchaikovsky’s Autumn Song, revisited on this recording). He then began his career playing piano trios with his sisters, violinist Kyung Wha Chung and cellist Myung Wha Chung.

Earlier recordings that feature Myung Whun Chung as pianist include albums of the Chung Trio playing Dvorak, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Beethoven and more, as well as Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time with Paul Meyer, Gil Shaham, and Jian Wang. Myung Whun Chung also recorded with Cecilia Bartoli on the critically-lauded Chants d’Amour, Mélodies Françaises.

“Although we normally think of Myung-Whun Chung as a conductor, this album of popular piano pieces reminds us what a fine and thoughtful pianist he is...His interpretations appear deeply thought out and the result of many years of experience in serious music-making. Chung’s performances are always thought-provoking and this is a very attractive and well-recorded collection” MusicWeb International, 30th July 2014

“after decades of conducting the world's greatest orchestras, it's particularly touching that [Chung] should turn here to music of such prevailing intimacy. Though most of the repertoire is well-known, Chung brings to much of it a decidedly original and refreshingly unconventional approach.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2014 ***

Incl Appendix


One of Jean-Yves Thibaudet's early Decca recitals, these are some of the most engaging and thrilling readings of a program of essentially concert etudes. To the Schumann, Thibaudet places the five posthumous variations as an appendix, and his reading of the Brahms Paganini is one of the most scintillating of all.

“Predictably the technical challenges of Brahms's Paganini Variations hold few fears for him. Even Horowitz once admitted that in Liszt's Faust Waltz he'd heard Thibaudet's fingers do things that his own couldn't in dexterity, clarity of articulation and general command... his fingers sing as finely as they sparkle... Sound reproduction throughout is at once natural and never too forward for comfort in your own room” Gramophone Magazine
