Kyung Wha Chung displays much vigour in the allegro of the Tchaikovsky, and there is a suitable fragility in the brief canzonetta, culminating in an insistency that never slacks in the finale.
Kyung Wha Chung's opening movement of the Mendelssohn is often rough-edged, but this is a molto appassionato after all. Again, there is a good immediacy to the sound.
This would not be my first choice (Vengerov is brilliant on the Tchaikovsky), but nevertheless there is little to quibble about on these highly-recommended performances.
(By the way, at the time of writing Amazon are showing the correct `Track Listings' but an incorrect list of what's `On This CD'.)
Recording quality: Compared to modern recordings it does sound a bit dated.
Hopefully it will be released in SACD format in the future !

Specially for Tchaikovsky, it seems like the characters of the piece and the player has come to such a match. There're tons of records for this much loved concerto, and some can be told as more solid, powerful, and technically more brilliant; yet I wonder if there's one that can be a comparison to Chung's interpretation in the terms of passion and (more importantly) lasting frechness. She really makes this worn-out piece alive and dynamic.
Menselssohn is wonderful too. This another too-often-played music is so lovely in itself that it is even more difficult to find the orginal colour and understanding of a player's own. And Kyung Wha Chung manages it up to such an extend.
Hard to believe that this was the first major recording of a young violinist. This is a keeper.
