As a composer, there is nothing more exciting than listening to gifted musicians play, and sometimes arrange, my music. In 2012, I performed with two wonderful young musicians in Seoul. They were Jiyoung Yun (violin) and Youngmin Kim (cello). Later in 2017, we performed again together several times in and around, Seoul.
I am very delighted my record company invited them with pianist arranger Sehwan Park to record an album of some of my best known music. Melody is everything to me, and someone once wrote “Melody is the golden thread running through the maze of tones by which the ear is guided, and the heart reached’’
And that just about sums up my music…
Thank you, Jiyoung and Youngmin, for playing my music so beautifully, and Sehwan
for playing and arranging it so gracefully.
