. . . [the] Decca box set of her collected recordings shows her proficiency on a wide range of music . . .

The Kyung-Wha Chung set is a wonderful reminder of what an outstanding violinist she was during her Decca years . . . Chung's playing is gloriously musical, nothing is done for effect and it all emerges from the written notes -- and her tone is invariably quite breathtakingly beautiful. I especially like her in 20th-century concertos -- the Berg, Bartóks, Prokofievs, Stravinsky and Walton -- where she captures the angularity and rhythmic life perfectly but never ignores the works' lyricism. The Decca recordings really are in a class of their own, capturing her tone with striking fidelity. There's some chamber music here, too: apart from [the] excellent Respighi and Strauss sonatas, the Mendelssohn and Brahms First Piano Trios and Dvorák Nos 2 and 3 (with her siblings Myung-Wha and Myung-Whun) are vibrant and full of character, and her encores disc with Philip Moll is a delight . . . this is a set to treasure and is a fine memento of a great player.

. . . [Chung's Complete Decca Recordings showcases her] mix of silver, steel and molten metal; anyone who's seen her live will recall an elfin figure who hurls herself physically into performances of volcanic passion . . . concerto touchstones include the strength and sweetness of the Prokofievs with Previn, and the pungent Bartóks in the combustible partnership with Georg Solti . . . there's the intensely rewarding duo with Radu Lupu in the Franck and Debussy Sonata . . . Joining forces with her siblings as the Chung Trio results in a feisty Beethoven Triple Concerto and beautifully balanced piano trios by Dvorák, Mendelssohn and Brahms.

Londres la découvre lorsqu'elle remplace Perlman au pied levé dans le concerto de Tchaikovski, et Decca l'engage illico pour un album Tchaikovski/ Sibelius. Splendide! Comme la rencontre magique avec Kondrachine et les Wiener Philharmoniker, en 1979, pour un Opus 61 de Beethoven ŕ la sérénité olympienne.
