‘The 1st Daegu Asia Orchestra Symposium, officially started from October 23, ends on December 20. It is nearing the last session after presenting spectacular performances. Of them, we would like to introduce ’Korean Chamber Orchestra’ conducted by Kim Min.
At the Grand Concert Hall of Daegu Citizen Hall, Korean Chamber Orchestra which marks its 50th anniversary will appear on the stage on Thursday, December 12 at 07:30 PM. It is designated as the orchestra for peace by UN and is the first great chamber orchestra in the country, performing around 500 concerts both at home and abroad.
The music director Kim Min is among the first generation of Korean orchestra conductors, playing active roles on not only the international stages such as NDR Symphony Orchestra and Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, but also the National Symphony Orchestra and KBS Symphony Orchestra. He is now a regular member of the National Academy of Arts and an honorary professor at Seoul National University, known as a living violin legend.
Along with him, guitarist Jang Dae-Gun and violist Hong Ui-Yeon will show peculiar charms of Chamber Orchestra through Suite Buenos Aires of M.D. Puiol, Carmen Fantasy of F. Waxman, and ‘Symphony for String Orchestra’ of Felix Mendelssohn.
