Concert 3 | A Journey through the Korean Musical Imagination
Saturday 11th March
7:30pm Department of Music
Palace Green, Durham
Tonight’s concert is performed by Project Haal, a small musical collective that unites top talents from the world of traditional Korean music with the leading Korean composer Yoon Hyejin. Exploring the natural-sounding timbres of Korean percussion, daegeum flute and gayageum zither, they present traditional Korean pieces alongside exciting new compositions that imaginatively rework ancient ideas and sounds, showing how Korean music continues to reflect past, present and future. “Haal” is an exclamation made by Buddhist monks at the moment of realisation and, in this concert, the group seeks to provoke some “haal” moments.
