This program explores the European contemporary music scene from a different angle -- works specifically by Asian composers centered on Isang Yun’s works and his legacy as one of the most important teachers of the Korean educational tradition. Since Isang Yun’s participation at the Darmstädter Ferienkurse in 1958 more Asian composers were accepted to the European new music scene, opening a new-era for not only Asian composers, but also to the rebirth of European music as an international voice. This program follows the development of the linage from Yun and his student Toshio Hosokawa, who were pioneers in exploring the roots of their respective countries, and through to Chin, Cho, and Fujikura, whose music combines and transforms the languages of the West and East in ever-changing ways.

Violinist Yezu Woo and pianist Tomoki Park began their collaboration when they met as students at Bard College Conservatory of Music (New York) in 2015. The Duo have since performed together in venues such as New York’s Lincoln Center and Merkin Hall, and recitals in Frankfurt, Berlin, Paris, Verona, Yokohama (Japan) and Chuncheon (Korea), as part of the chamber music festival at Yezu’s hometown, where she is the director of the annual “New York in Chuncheon”. They were coached by their respective teachers, Laurie Smukler and Peter Serkin, and received further instructions from Shmuel Ashkenasi, Ani Kavafian, and members of the Shanghai and Guarneri Quartets. In 2016, they were finalists at the Boulder International Chamber Music Competition "Art of Duo" and in 2018 they participated in Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society’s Masterclass series. In 2019, the Duo hosted the AP Composition Prize that commissioned new works influenced by Korean traditional and modern music and poetry. In the 2019-2020 season, the Duo performed throughout Europe as members of the Ensemble Modern Academy. Their programming incorporates music from Bach and Mozart to 20th and 21st century repertory, with a special interest in the music of Isang Yun and Toru Takemitsu.

Yezu Woo is a graduate of Manhattan School of Music, The Juilliard School, the Bard College Conservatory of Music, and Stony Brook University where she recently completed her Doctorate Degree. A recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship in Germany (2019- 20), Yezu was a member of the Ensemble Modern Academy, Frankfurt, and a researcher at the Isang-Yun Haus in Berlin. Yezu is Honorary Ambassador of the City of Chuncheon, Korea, where she serves as the Artistic Director of the New York in Chuncheon Music Festival. She is based in Berlin, Germany.
