Myung-Whun Chung accompanies his audiences in almost mystical recollection. He knows how to measure himself against masterpieces such as Schubert'sUnfinished and Brahms's Fourth, along with an orchestra that has shared years of concerts with him at Teatro alla Scala and on tour.
When they first approached the symphony, Schubert and Brahms also had to confront the legacy of one of the greats who came before them-"You don't know what you hear, sensing behind your back the footsteps of a giant like Beethoven," Brahms said-and find their own personal meaning in the most iconic musical form in history. Schubert makes it a wandering among melodies drawn to a center never reached, an aimless search whose most natural conclusion is to have none at all, as happens in theUnfinished, his most famous symphony. Brahms' are constructions that rise to the heavens, even higher for the Fourth, and last, seal of his symphonic and musical art.
