“I’m delighted to announce that I am so happy to be returning to the recording studio after many years for a series of exciting artistic projects. The first of these is the solo Sonatas & Partitas of J.S.Bach: a monumental task. This is the unending quest of my musical journey.” – Kyung Wha Chung

After a career break of more than a decade she has announced the decision to return to the recording studio. With this album she fulfils a lifelong dream of recording the complete violin solo works by J.S. Bach, a project very close to her heart. The album, recorded at St George’s Bristol, will showcase Kyung Wha Chung as the maverick of the violin that she is with her inimitable and timeless sound.



"In this 2-disc set and first recording for 15 years, Kyung Wha Chung plays with authority undimmed." -Financial Times
