Notes & Reviews:

"Isang Yun's Chamber Symphony infuses Western classical form with Eastern modalities and manner of expression. He uses traditional Western instruments (set in an orchestral sonority reminiscent of Stravinsky) but the sounds they make are anything but. Mewing string portamentos predominate, as does a pervasive two-note toggle rhythm typical of Eastern music... Naxos' recording is first rate. In all, this disc is a rewarding experience, especially for those with a taste for the unusual." -ClassicsToday
