 Music: Soo Yeon Lyuh on Korean Haegeum
Music: Soo Yeon Lyuh on Korean HaegeumThe Center for World Music's 2020 Passport to Worlds of Music Series presents: Preservation Through Improvisation: The Korean Haegeum with Soo Yeon Lyuh.

Soo Yeon Lyuh is a master of the haegeum, a traditional Korean bowed string instrument. She is known for her flawless technique and full command of the haegeum’s traditional repertoire. At the same time, she is widely recognized for promoting the creation of new pieces for the instrument. For this event, Dr. Lyuh will play solo Korean court and folk music (Ji Yonghee school of haegeum sanjo). Composer and improvisor Christopher Adler will join Lyuh in two improvisatory pieces. Dr. Adler is a member of the composition faculty at the University of San Diego, and for this performance will play piano and the Southeast Asian Khaen, a multi-pipe mouth organ.

For twelve years, Lyuh was a member of South Korea’s National Gugak Center, the foremost institution for the preservation of Korean traditional music. At that institution, she was known for her pioneering efforts to reinvent improvisational methods that, while integral to historic Korean traditions, had been lost to generations of performers.

Since then, Lyuh has endeavored to weave authentic styles into new musical domains. In the process, she relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she has drawn inspiration from its dynamic improvised music scene. Her contributions have sparked the creation of a new haegeum repertoire. She has premiered dozens of new works from numerous American composers, including Larry Polansky, Cindy Cox, Karlton Hester, Thomas Osborne, and Donald Womack. She recently made her own debut as a composer with the Kronos Quartet. Lyuh’s “Yessori” for string quartet and haegeum is available on Kronos’ website. Lyuh premiered the piece live with Kronos at WNYC’s Greene Space in New York in March of 2017.
