Suite (2004), for orchestra

Score: Suite for Orchestra (2004)

Written: 2004

Performed by: Korean-Canadian Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Richard Lee

Performed at: George Weston Recital Hall, Toronto Centre for the Arts

Program Note:

Suite for Orchestra (2004) depicts the balance of conflict and serenity in life through the metaphor of music.  Moving through unconventional modalities of world musics, this piece suggests a truth: every culture is subject to the barbaric dance with chaos.  The slight dissonances carried by the horns during the final movement symbolically represent the impossibility of attaining perfect “harmony.”
