Korean violinist Kyung-Wha Chung has appeared regularly as a soloist with the world's most prestigious orchestras, working with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim, Sir Simon Rattle, André Previn, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti and the late Sir Georg Solti, as seen conducting here in this clip.
Felix Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor is surely one of the most outstanding works ever written and one of the most popular and most frequently performed violin concertos of all time. Distinctive aspects of the concerto include the almost immediate entrance of the violin at the beginning of the work (rather than following an orchestral preview of the first movement's major themes, as was typical in Classical era concertos) and as a whole, the concerto has a thoroughly composed form, in which the three movements are melodically and harmonically connected and played together without pauses between movements. The melodic structure of each movement becomes engraved in ones mind; truly the sign of a true masterpiece!
