Heo Iksoo (허익수), geomungo; Gyeonggi Korean Orchestra; Thomas Osborne, conductor

The Gyeonggi Korean Orchestra recently released a CD featuring recordings from their November 2018 concert, featuring premieres of six new pieces. The concert itself was the result of a competition, in which composers wrote new concertos for soloists with Korean orchestra. My own contribution to the concert was a geomungo concerto, composed for Heo Iksoo, someone I’ve worked with many times before. There’s more information about the piece here, and the audio is posted above.

The recording also features music by Kim Dae-sung  (김대성), Song Yang, Song Jeong (송정), Donald Reid Womack, and Ra Jae-Heok (라재혁).
