Performer Composers

Notes & 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.

Ritmo
Having explained this, it is remarkable how well the works that are touched by Klara Min, language connoisseur expressionist whose management produces sounds very evocative piano- Reflections in the water Pagh-Paan-of-beautiful Prelude n·m.8 Chae -and colorful- childhood memory of Kim-In all, the disk is recommended.

MusicWeb International
Sound quality is invariably excellent at the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and this recording is no exception. ... the music is absorbing in its way, and Klara Min's piano playing is demonstrably intelligent, technically assured and, where necessary, delicate or muscly.

Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist
There is tone poetry and twelve-tone abstraction and expressionist experimentation, and all of it is played both expertly and sympathetically by pianist Klara Min. Pagh-Paan's title composition is one of the loveliest on the program, followed by Yun's twelve-tone-influenced "Five Pieces." Recommended.

Allmusic.com
... Min clearly chooses which notes to emphasize, giving shape to these patterns, and this makes the piece engaging... Min is able to bring mystery into this entire work, which is sometimes dark and menacing... Klara Min has done a worthy job of tackling challenging music by the leading composers of her homeland.
