Today is Korean violin virtuoso Kyung Wha Chung’s birthday.

A student of Ivan Galamian and Joseph Szigeti, Ms Chung is widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s pre-eminent concert violinists – her fame in the 1970s and 80s ranking her alongside Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman.

Ms Chung currently performs internationally – and holds a teaching position on faculty at The Juilliard School.
