Korea - Land of the Morning Calm: A Selection of Kayagum Pieces
presented by Peter Duffy (11 May 2003)

Kayagum is one of Korea's most beloved instruments, dating back to the 6th century. Traditionally, the kayagum has been designed with 12 strings, but modern versions of the instrument can hold up to 25 strings. This presentation includes a collection of contrasting pieces, including a number of contemporary compositions that illustrate some of the modern performance techniques recently developed in Korea's musical culture.
