Programme Note:
Kangkangsullae for string trio was written on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of KBS FM and Prof. Mark Kopytman's 70th birthday. The piece was selected for the International Rostrum of Composers at Unesco, Paris in 2002.

The original Kangkangsullae is a dance piece that has prevailed through the seashore and islands of southwestern part of Korea. With this music, women hold hands and sing and dance in a large circle on such holidays as the first full moon of January, and the harvest full moon of August in the lunar calendar. The structure of Kangkangsullae for string trio is found in development and change which takes place in sections that hint of the original Kangkangsullae, some that clearly make use of it, and others that make free use of the theme in variation. All these things make for a spirit of celebration.

Premiere Information:
October 19, 1999, Art Sunjae, Seoul; Kaprizma Ensemble: Jonathan Keren violin, Gadi Abadi viola, Ira Givil cello.
