About

The second Beethoven recording of Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra (SPO) and Myung-Whun Chung, after the Beethoven Concerto & Symphony No.5 released in 2013.

A ‘must listen to’ popular repertoire, this is the live recording from the completely sold out concert in 2012 in Seoul (with a scream of Bravo at the end).

Soloist for the 4th movement are soprano Kathleen Kim, who made her debut in MET in 2007 and mostly performs across the US and Europe, including the 2012 BBC Proms; mezzo-soprano Songmi Yang, who received excellent reviews on her Wiener Staatsoper debut in Lucia di Lammermoor; tenor Yosep Kang, currently a soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin since 2002; and last but not least, bass-baritone Samuel Youn, the first-ever Korean/Asian to successfully star in the title role of 'Der fliegende Holländer', in Bayreuther Wagner Festspiele in 2012.

Sung together with a rich and abundant chorus.
