This 1972 recording captures a younger Kyung-Wha Chung at the height of her performance abilities, which are significant. The original LP was luscious, this new release from R2R tape is even better. Previn's and Kyung-Wha Chung's performance of the Walton Violin Concerto is certainly one of the finest in the recordings in the catalog and this new reissue in the DXD format to which I am listening serves it supremely well. Congratulations on another excellent release, HDTT!
I have CD of this recording. I heard completely different, so fresh sound of young Kyung-Wha Chung. She has many analog recordings for DECCA. I hope HDTT to transfer her recordings by 24/352.8DXD or DSD256.
Fine Decca late 60s sound. Kyung Wha Chung at her peak, playing two classic 20th Century violin concertos, Plus Previn and the LSO accompanying, also in a golden era. Add these together, and you get magic. If you have any interest at all in the music, this is an indispensable recording.
