    Musicians from North Korea's Unhasu Orchestra and France's Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra played together under the direction of South Korean maestro Chung Myung-whun in Paris on Wednesday evening (local time).

    This marks the first time that orchestra members from the Stalinist state have performed in public with French musicians. They played Brahms' first symphony.

    Chung, the chief conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, has also been serving as a music director at the French Orchestra since 2000.
