Notes and Editorial Reviews

Award-winning pianist Klara Min has been recognized for her “excellent technique, exuberance and vitality” (New York Concert review). Here she brings the unique synthesis of traditional sources and contemporary compositional techniques of five leading Korean composers. Their works range from descriptive serenity in Younghi Pagh-Paan’s Pa-mun, childhood simplicity in Chung Gil Kim’s Go Poong (‘Memory of Childhood’) and rhythmic and dynamic extremes in Sukhi Kang’s Piano Sketches. Pioneering figurehead Isang Yun is represented by his early expressionist Fünf Stücke and the much later improvisatory Interludium.
