[Letters] Maestro Chung conquers European audienceLast Friday, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra played for the very first time for European classical music fans at the famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. This European concert tour marks a new level of Asian musicians performing western classics .
Holding the hand of my 8-year-old daughter, we listened together for 2 hours to Maestro Chung Myung-hun as his orchestra took us into his wonderful musical landscape and offered a wide palette of colorful notes ending with a beautiful Rachmaninoff & Brahms.
The satisfied Dutch audience gave these Korean musicians a well-deserved applause and stood while the Maestro left the scene.
