Absorb the sounds of Korea. The haegeum has mesmerized for a millennium. Jean Ahn’s Concerto for this ancient folk instrument delicately spins silken lines of sound in communion with the Orchestra. Two works by Texu Kim bring the worlds of the west and Korea together, symphonic poems of this age, drawing on impressions of the past. Plus, Grieg’s beloved Piano Concerto with one of Korea’s finest keyboard artists.
