Biography

Kyung-Wha Chung is an internationally famous violinist who comes from a family of gifted musicians. Her mother was a pianist who encouraged her daughter to take up piano studies at the age of four. By the age of seven she had decided to concentrate on learning the violin and within a short space of time was considered to be a child prodigy. Three of her siblings are also famous classical musicians, her younger brother Myung-Whun is a pianist and conductor, her elder sisters Myung-Wha and Myung-Soh are a pianist and a cellist respectively and all have played at one time or another with Kyung-Wha as members of the Chung Trio.

Both Kyung-Wha and Myung-Soh were trained at New York's famous Juilliard School with Kyung-Wha studying under the tutelage of the Armenia violinist Ivan Galamian. From Juilliard she went on to become a joint winner of the Edgar Leventritt Competition which led to several high profile engagements including an invitation to play with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic. From these early beginnings the violinist's international reputation went from strength to strength and she has subsequently enjoyed a critically acclaimed recording career. Since 2007 she has been a faculty member of the Juilliard School.
