I heard Myung-Whun Chung and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra perform Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 and it was one of the best live performances I have heard of this famous work. I then heard them on the radio this year performing it again on the BBC Proms and decided to look on Amazon to see if they had recorded it. Well they recorded it for DG in 2011 about a month before I saw them at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh.

It's a wonderful recording of the "Pathetique" and the real strength of this Orchestra is the rich and refined string section which is used to great effect throughout the Symphony, although the woodwind and brass are fine too. In particular, though, the cellos in the second movement and the full strings in the final Adagio Lamentoso is just simply beautiful and makes for moving listening.

A seasoned and mature Pathetique from Seoul, Korea 5 Sept. 2013
By Poincare - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A superb Pathetique Symphony from the seasoned Chung/SPO/DG team, this is their fourth album featured by Deutche Grammophon.

What distinguishes this recording from all others are, Maestro Chung's sensationally musical approach in which the entire symphony is carefully measured and scaled towards its great Finale (IV.), and Michael Fine's extraordinary job in creating one of the finest digital sounds I ever heard.

Chung's opening movement is a model of restraint and great musicality ushered in waves of beautiful, lush sound of the orchestra. There are no surprises or twists along the way, but aided by the top notch engineering and deeply committed playing, it still creates drama and tension in due amount. The two inner movements are surprisingly fast and fleet feet, a decision made from the podium that will shine upon completing the all four movements. According to his interpretation, the Scherzo is not the end but there is much to be expected and said beyond III: the conductor seems to be keenly aware that coming to the end of his life Tchaikovsky summed up his most urgent feelings in this movement. Chung slows down the tempo quite a bit, phrasing each note with utmost seriousness and gravitas. Under his baton, the final note slips away almost unnoticed, as in Finale of Mahler's Ninth Symphony.

All in all, I cannot praise the effort and musicality that went into this production high enough. This one gets my highest rating, 10/10 for Performance and Sound.
