Deutsche Grammophon presents the second Beethoven recording from the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and Myung-Whun Chung, Beethoven: Symphony No. 9, the live recording from the 2012 sold-out concert in Seoul.  One of the most popular works in the repertoire, this is the live recording from the completely sold out concert in 2012 in Seoul (with a scream of Bravo at the end). The soloists for the 4th movement are soprano Kathleen Kim, who made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 2007 and regularly performs across the US and Europe; mezzo-soprano Songmi Yang, who received excellent reviews on her Wiener Staatsoper debut in Lucia di Lammermoor; tenor Yosep Kang, currently a soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin; and bass-baritone Samuel Youn, the first-ever Korean/Asian to successfully star as title role on Der fliegende Holländer in Bayreuth in 2012.
