Recompose × NOK Resident Composers Concert
The original program “Recompose” of National Orchestra of Korea and “Resident Composer” system combine into this performance. Recompose is NOK’s major series since 2014, which attempts to approach to traditional music from the modern perspectives. Two young composers will play their creative music this year. A Western music composer, Nicky Sohn, reinterprets the Korean folk song “The Lady of Ulsan” into “Finding to the Lady of Ulsan.” Bo-Hyun Kim reorganizes “Suryongeum” which’s usually played by duet of saenghwang and danso, and presents the “Gugak Orchestral Music - Wave on the Theme of Suryongeum” with contemporary interpretation. The Resident Composer system was initiated by NOK in 2016 for the first time of the Korean orchestra history. Two composers, Seong-Guk Kim and Il-Ryeon Jeong, were commissioned as resident composers to conduct various experiments with players on the first year. On the 2017-2018 season, Eun-Gu Kang and Ji-Hye Choi have been interacting with the members of NOK for creation. As a result, “Bujeong Nori” by Eun-Gu Kang and “River” by Ji-Hye Choi will be on the stage this March. Ki-Sun Sung, a permanent conductor of Gangnam Symphony Orchestra, is going to stand on the podium.
For the infinite possibilities of Korean music!
Recompose is National Orchestra of Korea’s major series, which attempts a wide range of musical experiments in the realm of our contemporary Korean orchestral music. After last year, the series comes back to Daloreum Hall. This program will present not only Recompose, but the result of 6-month research of resident composers commissioned for the new season. Through various workshop programs with the National Orchestra of Korea members, the two resident composers shared their thoughts on the musical path and future direction of the orchestra. Such a long-term exchange gives birth to certain musical solutions, which this performance aims to communicate to the audience.
