Notes & Reviews:

Making their harmonia mundi debut, Angela and Jennifer Chun focus on the seldom-heard repertoire for two violins. Accompanied by pianist Nelson Padgett, for this brilliantly performed recital the talented siblings have chosen 20th-century works in the most diverse styles. Presented here in their world-premiere recording are the unaccompanied 'Sonatina' and 'Pezzo Fantasioso' by Isang Yun (1917-1995), a South Korean composer who spent most of his professional life in Berlin. Improvisatory in feeling yet finely crafted, his two compositions date from the 1980s and share a wide poetic spectrum, full of forceful gestures.

Washington Post
Gifted violinists with elegant style, their unique approach to Bach double concerto was memorable.
