'Korean Folk Tunes' contains 20 traditional songs which reflect the joy, sorrow, hope and poetry of everyday life in Korea.
Kunihiko Ryo's arrangements retain the old Korean rhythm - despite their own artistic interpretation. The subtle ornaments embellishing the melody require a particularly high sensitivity. The edition is preceded by a detailed introduction to traditional rhythms, scales and keys.
As each song is preceded by the history of its origins, 'Korean Folk Tunes' provides an interesting insight into the world of Korean folk songs.
The accompanying CD contains all pieces in a complete version with ensemble as well as play-along tracks.
