Born in Korea, Loved by the World
- Chung Kyung-wha, violinist

Chung Kyung-wha is the 'empress of the violin.'
In 1957, Korea was still reeling from the war when nine-year old Chung performed Mendelssohn's concerto with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. Still a young girl, she made her mark when she was featured on 'Musical America,' the oldest classical music magazine in the US, which declared her a violin prodigy.

In 1961, when she was 13, she was admitted to the school of music at Juilliard. There, she studied under the great Ivan Galamian. In 1970, she made her European debut in London. Her performance of Tchaikovsky's concerto made her an instant star. She was 21 years old. She went on to perform with orchestras in Europe, North America and Japan and worked with legendary conductors in virtuoso performances.

A perfectionist and a consummate professional, she played 120 performances a year. They called her the 'sorceress on the violin.' Then in 2005, Chung injured her finger and was unable to play. After years away, she made a comeback in 2011, and is now as active as ever before. Driven by passion and a sense of liberation, Chung Kyung-wha is experiencing her second golden age. She knows how to command the stage, but this week, she shares her message of hope with us on [Heart to Heart].
