“…The most fascinating and beautiful segment came after intermission, a commissioned piece by Jeeyoung Kim called “Tryst. In this piece, Korean musician played Kayagum and sang, according to Yo-Yo Ma, of “the yearning and anguish of courtly love.” Yo- Yo Ma and oboist accompanied her, offering delicate melodic counterpoint to the music’s main thrust. Even to the untrained ear, there was no mistaking the elegance and poignancy of this music. The delicate, plangent tones of the Kayaagum, with their contrast between sharp attack and sinuous decay, were mesmerizing, and the singer’s forceful, sometimes guttural singing lent urgency to the music’s air of refinement.” – San Francisco Chronicle, Joshua Kosman

 

“…The most striking was the premiere performance of a work commissioned by Ethos with Jerome Foundation Funding, Jeeyoung Kim’s “Man Follows the Earth.” Spare and airy in some passages, Kim’s composition is fiery in others. From skin instruments like drums to clanging, pinding metal materials, Ethos elicited a balanced universal a soothing heartbeat gave way to universe: a soothing heartbeat gave way to urgent signals, gradually melting into the joyous rhythms of raindrops and, by implication, the primal stew. Elements met and merged in the work that drew on Korean court and folk music for its subtle statement of mankind’s place in time, and in the universe.” – Daily Journal, Laura Stewart
