Sunwook Kim · Alban Gerhardt · Wu Wei
Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra
Myung-Whun Chung (sheng)

"The Cello Concerto . . . is the biggest and most ambitious of the three, and arguably the most important concerto for that instrument to appear since Lutoslawski's in 1970. The solo writing pushes the cellist -- the superb Alban Gerhardt -- to the limits of the possible . . . [Piano Concerto]: as the soloist Sunwook Kim shows, the total effect is undeniably brilliant and effective . . . ["Su" for sheng and orchestra]: [it's Wu Wei's] extraordinary virtuosity that allows [Unsuk Chin] to create such original textures, with the sheng adding a reedy edge to the slowly shifting chords, or a shimmering haze to the more swiftly moving passages. The effects are beautifully judged and, as in all the works here, meticulously realised by the Seoul Philharmonic under Myung-Whun Chung."
